ADNOC Inks Agreements With Japanese Partners To Boost Low-Carbon Hydrogen Value Chain
In the presence of the UAE Minister of Industry and Advanced Technology Sultan Al Jaber and the Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry NISHIMURA Yasutoshi, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company signed two agreements with Japanese partners to strengthen the low-carbon hydrogen value chain between the UAE and Japan.
The agreements, which were signed in Sapporo, Japan, by Hanan Balalaa, SVP, New Energies and CCUS, of ADNOC and a number of its partners, aim to strengthen the long-standing energy partnership between the two nations while pushing workable solutions to assist satisfy the rising demand for clean fuels around the world.
ADNOC's most recent strategic agreements show its dedication to collaborating with clients to decarbonize the energy system as an early mover in building global markets for hydrogen and its carrier fuels, such as ammonia.
With Kawasaki, one of the agreements is to investigate the production, liquefaction, and delivery of hydrogen to significant international markets. The second agreement, with Mitsui, INPEX, the Clean Fuel Ammonia Association, and the Japan Organisation for Metals and Energy Security, aims to confirm clean certification for ADNOC's low-carbon ammonia projects.
Both energy sources will be crucial in decarbonizing difficult-to-abate industries because they have no carbon dioxide emissions.
The accords come as nations all around the world intensify their efforts to cut carbon emissions and achieve the objectives of the Paris climate pact. These pacts are all the more important in the context of achieving global decarbonization because Japan and the UAE also aim to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
