Osaka, Japan – With its Brand Statement of A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE, Yanmar Holdings Co., Ltd. is undertaking a range of activities in pursuit of a decarbonized society, from development of new energy sources to realising zero-emissions from its headquarters, the YANMAR FLYING-Y BUILDING.
Yanmar’s long-standing efforts towards realizing a sustainable society include the development of bio-gas cogeneration systems that convert sewage and waste food into clean energy, generation systems that utilise waste cooking oil and a demonstration plant that realises sustainable energy from rice husks for a resource recycling agriculture.
In 2021, the company has accelerated its efforts towards realisation of a hydrogen-based society with a partnership with German company 2G, a leading provider of hydrogen-powered cogeneration systems. In other developments, in March of this year, Yanmar completed tests of its hydrogen fuel-cell boat where a polymer electrolyte fuel cell (PECM) system was successfully installed into a Yanmar demonstration vessel.
Yanmar continues to pursue collaborations towards decarbonation with partners in Yanmar’s business domains of the land, the sea and the city.
Looking towards the middle of 2021, Yanmar will announce a comprehensive
Group-wide decarbonization strategy and present commitments to the realisation of a decarbonized society, while accelerating its decarbonization activities.
