Honda Motor: 70MPa Smart Hydrogen Station Demonstration Facility
About The Facility
70MPa Smart Hydrogen Station is a packaged hydrogen production, storage and filling equipment.
It is the world's first "facility where it is possible to pressurize hydrogen gas to 70 MPa, store it, and fill it into FCV without using a compressor with hydrogen production and storage equipment by high pressure water electrolysis".
It is a compact size with about 6 square meters floor space of main body, being smaller than the conventional type (35MPa Smart Hydrogen Station).
With Honda's proprietary high-differential-pressure electrolyzer system "Power Creator", this hydrogen station can produce up to 2.5 kg of hydrogen per 24 hours with a production pressure of 77 MPa from sunlight and commercial power supply without using a compressor and about 11 kg can be stored.
At the time of filling with hydrogen, equipment for cooling hydrogen to -20 ° C is also installed, and by filling with the compressed hydrogen filling standard, it can be filled in a fuel cell vehicle compatible with 70 MPa.
This 70MPa Smart Hydrogen Station is adopted “Technology development and demonstration project that Strengthening measures induction type CO2 discharge reduction” which is conducted by Ministry of Environment for leading technology development and demonstration for global warming countermeasure
How We Work
70MPa Smart Hydrogen Station is available to produce hydrogen as soon as connect water and electricity, and a simple, small and sustainable hydrogen station.
Packaged system drastically shortens installation time after shipping and Compact Package drastically reduces installation space requirements since it is fit in a small hydrogen station installation criteria.
By utilizing the renewable energy power, such as solar power, waste generation and bio-power generation of the region, from the manufacturing stage of the hydrogen in the fuel to use the stage of the fuel cell vehicle, this system does not emit any CO2.

We focused on utilizing Hydrogen as a solution to the challenges of global warming and exhaustion of fossil fuels.
We are engaged in technology R&D to contribute to hydrogen society, such as hydrogen station technology, fuel cell vehicle, external power supply technology, based on the our concept of "making," "using," and "connecting." To accelerate realization of hydrogen society, we will keep challenging against difficulties.
Please visit our smart hydrogen station which is the first step towards becoming a hydrogen society.
