Hrein Energy has been researching and developing organic hydride hydrogen vehicles.

Organic hydride hydrogen vehicles use a hydrogen-gasoline blended fuel which is expected to improve fuel efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

Hydrogen is used in fuel cell vehicles but presents difficulties when it comes to use. For example, if a small amount of hydrogen leaks into the air and comes in contact with even a minimal amount of static electricity, an explosion can occur. In addition, hydrogen must be cooled to an extremely low temperature of minus 253°C for liquefaction to occur.

In contrast, "organic hydride", which is an organic compound with bonded hydrogen, can be stored at room temperature under normal pressure. In addition, organic hydride can be easily produced and the hydrogen can be easily split off. The role of the hydrogen is to work as a combustion stimulant to foster efficient gasoline combustion.

Compared to fuel cell vehicles and hydrogen vehicles, organic hydride vehicles are next-generation fueled vehicles that are more likely to gain widespread use at a low cost because they are designed based on existing mass produced cars.
