Green is the new gold for minerals exploration firm Province Resources which unveiled its vision to create Australia’s first green hydrogen project in February. It’s still early days but since announcing the plans, interest in the project, which could produce 60,000 tonnes of green hydrogen in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia, has skyrocketed.
Dubbed the HyEnergy Zero Carbon HydrogenTM Project, it was revealed by Province Resources as part of an acquisition and proposes to generate 1GW of renewable energy to produce green hydrogen and green ammonia.
