Rie Kugimiya, COO of Chitose Group, and Takanori Hoshino Ph.D., General Manager of Algae Utilization Group, were invited to the reception hosted by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri of Malaysia with representatives of Japanese companies on May 27th, 2022.
Currently, the Chitose Group is constructing a 5-hectare algae cultivation facility in Sarawak, Malaysia, as part of a project commissioned by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), and plans to expand the facility to 2000 hectares in 2025 and beyond.
The facility is expected to produce about 140,000 tons of algae per year, and our activities in Malaysia play a very important role in the establishment of the algae industry through MATSURI.
