Team of rivals sets out to build first hydrogen supply chain

Kawasaki Heavy Industries built this hydrogen liquefaction plant in autumn 2014.

TOKYO -- Big Japanese companies are setting aside rivalries and working with the government to make hydrogen a mainstream fuel.

     The country's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization, a state-funded body known as NEDO, in June launched an initiative to produce and store hydrogen abroad, then transport it to Japan for use as fuel. It is collaborating with major industrial plant builders and general contractors to create large-scale, hydrogen-based power generation systems.
