The projected Emerald biomass-to-hydrogen plant at Moreton Bay, Queensland, will be partially funded by a funding agreement that Pure Hydrogen has signed with Singapore hydrogen developer CAC-H2.
The first of several planned by Pure Hydrogen across the nation, the joint venture waste-to-hydrogen plants will accept feedstock like wood waste and transform it into Emerald Hydrogen utilizing gasification equipment.
The factory, which is situated in Moreton Bay close to Brisbane, is scheduled to begin operating in early 2024 and start producing 1,000 to 2,500 kilograms per day with the intention of increasing that capacity to 30,000 kilograms per day.
It will provide the fuel for hydrogen fuel cell automobiles like those made by Australian company H2X Global, a company in which Pure Hydrogen is a shareholder.
In accordance with the conditions of the agreement, Pure Hydrogen will contribute 25% of the initial cost of the biomass waste to hydrogen plant’s construction, which is estimated to be $3.2 million. Pure Hydrogen also has the option to contribute 25% more to the project. According to Pure Hydrogen managing director Scott Brown, the money, which will be given in installments over the course of the next 12 months, represents a significant advancement for the company’s Moreton Bay Hydrogen Hub.
