Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation
Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation held an environmental education class on “hydrogen” at the Toshiba Science Museum, a junior high school in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture and a Michi-no-Eki roadside station in Fukushima Prefecture where FH2R* is located.
In this class, firstly, we explained to participants environmental issues, global warming caused by the increase of greenhouse gases particularly CO2 and that hydrogen is an effective solution to prevent global warming.
Next, participants experimented with generating and consuming hydrogen using pencils and dry cell batteries.
The purpose of this class is that participants become interested in environmental issues and their solutions.
A participant commented: “I realized through this class that the environmental issues we are currently facing. and learned that hydrogen and fuel cells can solve them.”
