The Japanese government plans to start field testing clean hydrogen production using nuclear power by 2028, Nikkei reported, noting that this followed successful safety tests of the High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR). The test was carried out by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) at the Oarai Research and Development Institute in Ibaraki prefecture as an international joint research project under the OECD/NEA (Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development/Nuclear Energy Agency).
