Future Goal

Tatsuno believes that while the demand for petrol will still remain, at the same time, the demand for new sources of sustainable energy will be increasing, and one of them will be hydrogen.

One of our goals is to promote and contribute to the hydrogen society.  We have been investing in hydrogen technology over the years and since 2013 we have been offering HYDROGEN-NX, the hydrogen dispenser.
