On May 29, the Science & Technology Diplomatic Circle Kansai visited Hitachi Zosen Chikko Works in Osaka. Known for its cutting-edge R&D in decarbonization technologies like hydrogen production, PEM water electrolyzers, and CO2 methanation, Chikko Works is a crucial hub for the Hitachi Zosen Group. The visit started at with a warm welcome by Hitachi Zosen's Dr. Izumiya, Senior Manager.
