H2 PRODUCER

BioPower Solutions
Q

BIOPOWER

Biopower Solutions is a pre-revenue start-up company developing a novel, modular and scalable solution to convert crop residues such as cane trash, cotton gin trash, grape marc, rice husk, grain cobs, among others into hydrogen using proprietary technology which can then converted into ammonia, a hydrogen derivative.

The technology has been successfully demonstrated for diesel production. Currently, Biopower Solutions is seeking an industry partner to demonstrate the technology, with a target production of between 200kg/day to 5 tonnes/day of hydrogen.

Hazer Group
Q

HAZER GROUP LIMITED

Hazer Group Limited is a pioneering ASX-listed technology development company undertaking the commercialisation of the HAZER® Process, a low-emission hydrogen and graphite production process. Our process enables the effective conversion of natural gas and similar feedstocks, into hydrogen and high-quality graphite, using iron ore as a process catalyst.

Originating at the University of Western Australia, the Hazer Process effectively converts methane, contained in natural gas or biogas, into hydrogen and graphite. The process has low carbon emissions, capturing the carbon in the gas feedstock as a saleable graphite by-product rather than a waste CO2.

In July 2020 Hazer approved the Hazer Commercial Demonstration Plant (CDP), the first larger-scale, fully integrated deployment of the Hazer Process. The CDP will produce 100 tpa of hydrogen using biogas produced during the treatment of wastewater.

The project will be located at Water Corporation’s Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant, located in Munster. The hydrogen produced will be fuel cell grade, capable of being use as a low-emission transport fuel, for power generation or in clean industrial applications. The CDP will use biogas produced at the treatment plant as feedstock to produce hydrogen and graphite. The Project will utilise approximately two million standard cubic metres of biogas that is currently being flared for environmental mitigation. Hazer secured $9.41 million funding from ARENA Funding for this project.

In January 2020 Hazer announced its successful application with the Western Australian Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Fund for funding of a Feasibility Study into the establishment of a renewable hydrogen transport hub in the City of Mandurah.

City of Mandurah
Q

CITY OF MANDURAH

The City of Mandurah is a local government area of Western Australia, covering both Mandurah proper and an additional area reaching down as far south as Lake Clifton and aims to become one of Australia’s leading hydrogen cities.

In late 2019, the City of Mandurah commissioned research into a number of globally emerging industries for potential application in Mandurah and the neighbouring Shire of Murray. The subsequent research report found that the Hydrogen economy has significant potential for establishment in Mandurah/Murray as an industry that could help expand and diversify the sub-region’s existing industry capability and create new high-skilled employment opportunities.

The City of Mandurah and Hazer Group Limited have been collaborating since 2019 to identify potential hydrogen demand centres within the region. This led to a successful application to the WA Renewable Hydrogen Fund (Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development) to deliver a Renewable Hydrogen Transport Hub in the City of Mandurah Feasibility Study which is currently underway.
