Pure Hydrogen and Wildfire Energy have inked a new deal that will see commercial waste converted into hydrogen power at a new plant south of Brisbane in Australia.
The plant is expected to produce 1,500kg of hydrogen per day which will then be resold to customers through a planned network of hydrogen storage and distribution hubs across Australia.
Wildfire Energy will provide its technology based on a unique proprietary Moving Injection Horizontal Gasification (MIHG) process.
The technology converts waste into hydrogen by loading waste into the MIHG reactor with raw syngas then conditioned to remove chars, sulphurs and other containments for hydrogen to be separated and purified for end use.
Scott Brown, Managing Director at Pure Hydrogen, said, “Partnering with established and proven technology partners is a key plank in our growth initiatives and illustrates that we have the necessary technology, infrastructure and skills to deliver green hydrogen fuel to industry and consumers in relatively short order.”
This new plant adds another hydrogen distribution and storage point for Pure Hydrogen around Brisbane, the Gold Coast and surrounding areas, contributing to the Australian desire to create a national hydrogen infrastructure.
Pure Hydrogen said the new facility correlates with the recent Hyzon Motors partnership and the five large-scale hydrogen plants that are planned in ports across the east coast of Australia with the MoU showcasing Pure Hydrogen’s desire to add to its existing hydrogen portfolio.
