Western Australia’s Premier Mr Mark McGowan recently visited the POSCO Center in Seoul and watched the POSCO Group’s hydrogen value chain special exhibition POSCO Hydrogen World and had a conversation with POSCO Group’s CEO Mr Jeong-woo Choi and discussed ways to cooperate in the clean hydrogen, green steel and secondary battery material business. Mr McGowan said “It was an opportunity to see the competitiveness of POSCO Group in new and renewable energy including hydrogen. In particular, POSCO Group’s preparations for the entire value chain, from green hydrogen production to hydrogen reduction steelmaking, and hydrogen storage & utilization, are very impressive. POSCO Group will be a good partner not only in traditional raw material cooperation with Western Australia but also in the eco-friendly energy fields such as clean hydrogen, green steel, and secondary battery materials.”POSCO CEO Mr Jeong-woo Choi said “Australia is a business partner country that has been with POSCO Group since its foundation. Also, we need close cooperation in the field of clean hydrogen and secondary battery materials, which POSCO Group is focusing on as a future growth engine.”POSCO Group has so far invested more than KRW 4 trillion in resource development in Australia, including iron ore, lithium, and nickel. Australia is evaluated as an optimal country for overseas clean hydrogen development due to its large land, abundant solar energy, wind resources, and advanced laws and systems.
