JERA Co., Inc(“JERA”)invested approximately €15 million in Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies GmbH ("Hydrogenious LOHC”)through its subsidiary, JERA Americas Inc.
Hydrogenious LOHC, has been developing hydrogen storage and transportation technology, which possesses unique technology of Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier(“LOHC”)as one of hydrogen energy carriers. Hydrogenious LOHC uses benzyltoluene as carrier medium, and hydrogen is chemically added by hydrogenation process. LOHC is liquid and hydrogen can be transported and stored within ambient conditions. It is hardly flammable and non-explosive, making it easy to handle. The world's largest LOHC plant is being built by Hydrogenious LOHC in Dormagen, Germany, with commissioning scheduled in 2023.

By investing in the company, JERA will strive to acquire knowledge of LOHC technology, a potential game changer as a hydrogen energy carrier, and will support development of LOHC plants in Europe, North America, Asia etc., thereby contributing to establishing hydrogen supply chains globally.
