Australian hydrogen producer Hazer Group is collaborating with global engineering firm Chiyoda Corporation on the commercialisation of its technology in Japan.
The two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which also includes the development of low emission hydrogen production facilities.
Hazer said it has focused on markets that have strong support for the transition to a hydrogen economy and the uptake of hydrogen as a transport fuel.
The company is considering emerging premium low emission hydrogen opportunities in Asia, as well as identifying opportunities in markets such as the US (California) and Europe.
Hazer Group Managing Director and CEO Geoff Ward said Hazer is delighted to continue the excellent relationship it has developed with Chiyoda through the MOU.
“Japan is a leading proponent of the hydrogen economy and a key market for clean, low-emission hydrogen such as that produced by the Hazer Process,” he said.
“Through their work for the Japanese government, cities, prefectures and private industry clients, Chiyoda is a leader in the hydrogen industry in Japan.”
“Chiyoda’s knowledge, experience and capability make them an excellent partner for Hazer, with their project development, execution and operation capabilities complementing Hazer’s technology offering.”
“We look forward to working closely with them in this important market.”
