With sights set on its 100th anniversary in 2035, MKK looks to provide the means for clean energy based on hydrogen.
“By 2050, we aim to become a corporate group that contributes to the resolution of five social issues: CO2 reduction/reuse and climate change, resource recycling, water and food, natural disasters, and labor shortages.”
Toshikazu Tanaka, President, Mitsubishi Kakoki Kaisha, Ltd.
The green revolution requires innovative technology developed with sustainability in mind from start to finish. One of the companies providing these eco-friendly solutions is Japan’s MKK.
Founded in 1935, MKK has grown into a company that provides comprehensive engineering solutions ranging from engineering services including the design of mechanical equipment for chemical plants to environmental remediation plants such as air pollution and wastewater treatment systems.
This growth has been driven in recent years by a focus on the environmental improvement sectors and or markets
sector, which is best shown by its HyGeia compact hydrogen generator.
Responding to the need for hydrogen-based clean energy, the HyGeia is a compact and highly efficient hydrogen generator used in a wide range of industries. Not stopping there, MKK’s R&D team is also working on using its HyGeia technology to generate green hydrogen from biogas of wastewater sludge. “This is a model that can contribute to the expansion of green hydrogen and is also a model of local production for local consumption,” says president Toshikazu Tanaka.
HyGeia isn’t MKK’s first cutting-edge product, in fact the company’s SJ-H Series of oil purifiers for marine use hold a third of the global market share, and Mr. Tanaka hopes green hydrogen produced from biogas of waste water sludge and biogas can have a similar impact both on markets and on the planet.
MKK wants to spread the positive impact of harnessing green energy beyond its domestic shores and is focusing its international efforts on Southeast Asia, where it is already present in China (Shanghai), Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia and Malaysia. Mr. Tanaka adds: “We are looking for partners who are interested in similar fields to us and also collaborate with us, such as clean energy and waste treatment.”
We are confident that these partnerships will be a driving force for achieving a carbon neutral society.
