Line Hydrogen signs MoU with Blue Cap Mining for new ‘carbon neutral’ mine

Australian independent green hydrogen company Line Hydrogen has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Blue Cap Mining to develop the energy requirements for Blue Cap’s Lord Byron Gold Mine in Western Australia.

The new mining project will be the first carbon-neutral mine in the western state and one of only two active mines in Australia to reach the milestone.

The project, slated to begin development in early 2023, will see Line Hydrogen design, develop and operate renewable technologies at the site to replace fossil fuel-based power generation.
