|Fueled by Hydrogen|
Hydrogen which fuels the New Toyota Mirai is one of the most promising fuel sources available. Hydrogen is highly efficient and leaves nothing else behind than pure water.

| Steam Reforming|
Steam Reforming of methane is the most common method of hydrogen production toady. It combines methane with high-temperature steam to trigger a reaction and separate the hydrogen. Toyota continually look for ways to process methane from renewable sources.
Gasification is a process in which organic materials, like crops and livestock waste, are converted into hydrogen. The organic materials are placed under high temperatures, which triggers a reaction that separates the hydrogen.
Hydrogen can also be produced by separating water into its two primary elements - hydrogen(H2) and oxygen(O2). This process, known as electrolysis, passes an electrical current through the water to extract hydrogen. The electricity can be sourced from clean, renewable energy.
THE FUEL TANK ARE DESIGNED
NOT TO LEAK.
Every material selected is used to contain hydrogen safely.

IN A HIGH-SPEED COLLISION, SENSORS
STOP THE FLOW OF HYDROGEN.
To prevent hydrogen from traveling to potentially damaged systems outside of the tank, the system automatically shuts the tank's output valve.
ANY LEAKED HYDROGEN IS QUICKLY
All hydrogen-related parts are located outside the cabin and designed to help ensure leaked hydrogen doesn't build up.
HYDROGEN ESCAPES SAFELY
INTO THE ATMOSPHERE.
Since the gas is lighter than air, it rapidly disperses, reducing the time window to cause damage in the event of an ignition.
