Yomiuri Shimbun: Japan to power fishing boats with Toyota's hydrogen fuel cells



Yomiuri Shimbun | 4 January 2019

The Japan Fisheries Research and Education Agency (FRA) will team with Toyota Motor Corp. to develop a fishing boat powered by hydrogen fuel cells that emit zero carbon dioxide, it has been learned.

The Yokohama-based national research and development agency will begin designing the body of the ship in fiscal 2019 and conduct ocean testing in fiscal 2022, with the aim of commercializing the ship.

The FRA hopes the ship will help prevent global warming, and that the use of hydrogen as fuel will help make the fisheries industry more stable at a time when the central government is committed to slashing the price of the chemical element.

Hydrogen fuel cells power a motor by producing electricity through a reaction of hydrogen fuel with oxygen in the air. The FRA’s hydrogen-powered boat will be used at a tuna farm on the Goto island chain in Nagasaki Prefecture. The agency plans to build a 19-ton prototype in fiscal 2019 to test safety and practicality.

Toyota developed a hydrogen fuel cell bus for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics that has twice the power of its fuel cell electric vehicle, the Mirai. The automaker will offer the FRA a next-generation fuel cell system capable of producing power equal to or greater than the bus’ system...more: http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0005458286

Toyota Fuel Cell vs. Diesel



2 Mirai stacks in series can power a Semi-Truck, 5 could power a building for a few days

Ceres Power from the UK explains the concept



The hydrogen revolution gains momentum. 2019 will be a huge year, with the introduction of the Nikola Motor H2 Electric Semi Truck and the US National Network of solar hydrogen stations. Stay tuned...

2. And how much CO2 is emitted creating hydrogen fuel cells, the hydrogen fuel, the fishing boat,etc??

3. "Hydrogen fuel cells that emit zero carbon dioxide"

It's ridiculous to keep spouting your old canard.
It says the fuel cells do not emit co2. Nothing about the manufacturing of the boat or the H2.
Gotta start somewhere.
Nothing is ever completely finished when things start rolling out.

It's as bad of an argument as "it snowed today, so much for global warming".

5. ''Nothing about the manufacturing of the boat or the H2.''...well NO SHIT, which is why...

...I asked the OP poster the questions:

"And how much CO2 is emitted creating hydrogen fuel cells, the hydrogen fuel, the fishing boat,etc??"

...that I asked. And that is because the OP poster has a history of deflecting away from discussing the TOTAL co2 footprint of the hydrogen power technology that he/she keeps wanking on about here. Or do you think keeping hydrogen stored at negative 253C doesn't require a lot of energy?

And here YOU are deflecting with the same old bullshit deflection responses too......or worse yet, you didn't understand my simply worded questions.....................

6. Because everyone knows already.

That it requires energy to produce these things.
Sometimes the consumption of fossil fuels is required to produce that energy.
Do you really expect every article about hydrogen to go into that?

It's like a fucking broken record in here.
Every time a thread is posted about hydrogen technology. Someone chimes in like nobody ever thought of that yet.
