Fukuoka Hydrogen Station


World’s first hydrogen station for vehicle to utilize the wastewater

treated in the Fukuoka Chubu Sewage Treatment Center.

The process has been developed as a result of the verification testing of technology

for hydrogen creation sourced from wastewater biogas.

In March 2015, Fukuoka City and Kyushu University installed a station where the hydrogen

is derived from renewable energy, which produces hydrogen from biogas generated from the

fermentation of sewage sludge. This facility forces the biogas through a separation membrane

to separate it into methane and CO2, and produces hydrogen via steam reforming in which

this methane is made to react with steam.

It was adopted as a Breakthrough by Dynamic Approach in Sewage High Technology (B-DASH)

Project in FY2014 as part of the Hydrogen Leader City Project, which is being subsidized by the

Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. It will produce 3,300m3 of hydrogen from

the 2,400m3 of biogas generated per day from sewage treatment. Since there are sewage

treatment plants located all over Japan, this could be tied in with the local production of energy for

local consumption. According to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, it is

estimated that 130 million m3 of hydrogen could be produced each year by making use of the

2,100-some such plants found throughout Japan. (October 2015)
