Testing technology to produce hydrogen from offshore wind power

The Japanese environment ministry has assigned the National Institute for Environmental Studies, in Tsukuba, Ibaraki prefecture, to test a technology to mass produce hydrogen from offshore wind power plant. The ministry is anxious to meet the fuel needs of hydrogen fuel cells without contributing to greenhouse gases. At the moment the most realistic method of mass producing hydrogen is extracting methane from gasoline, but the process creates carbon dioxide. As a measure to tackle global warming, the government hopes to increase the number of fuel cell vehicles to 50,000 by 2010.
