UNIST opens new hydrogen research center

Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in Korea has opened a new hydrogen-specialized research center.

The new center will serve as a dedicated research center for not only the production of hydrogen, but also storage and distribution, as well as leading policy development.

The new center was set up to push for a future hydrogen society in accordance with the nation’s ‘Hydrogen Economy Roadmap’, as well as Ulsan’s ‘2030 Hydrogen City Development Strategy’. Ulsan, which has an excellent infrastructure for hydrogen industry, needed a dedicated research center to spur the development of new technologies, as well as to demonstrate and distribute hydrogen.

Recently, UNIST was selected to lead the ‘Eco-friendly Hydrogen Mobility Project’ to supply and demonstrate solar-to-hydrogen production, as part of the ‘Climate Change Countermeasure R&D Project’ by the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT).

Under the direction of Vice President JaeSung Lee, Professors from the School of Energy and Chemical Engineering (Sang Kyu Kwak, Youngsik Kim, Jin Young Kim, Jungki Ryu, Kwanyong Seo, Hyun-Kon Song, Hankwon Lim, Ji Wook Jang, and Sang Hoon Joo), the School of Natural Science (Hyeon Suk Shin), and the School of Materials Science and Engineering (Seungho Cho) will carry out multi-discipline convergence research projects on various aspects of hydrogen energy, including its production, storage and use as a fuel for generation of mechanical/thermal/electrical energy.

Meanwhile, UNIST plans to expand the center through the construction of new dedicated buildings. The building that are currently being planned will comprise six floors and a basement with a gross floor area of approximately 5,700 square meters.

So-Korea, Japan, China and India should jointly or pooled resources required to develop, mass produce, transport and distribute lower cost clean H2 for FCEVs, homes and industries ands to further reduce pollution and GHGs.

Sounds like there is consensus.
Industry is leading this with gov'ts persuaded.
Investment in clean power gen needs to shift up two gears to keep up.
