Congratulations to Hazer Group on its recent funding announcement

Congratulations to HMA member Hazer Group on its recent announcement that its application for funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) under the Advancing Renewables Program has been approved by the Board of ARENA.

The Board of ARENA has approved ARENA to enter into negotiations for a funding agreement of up $9.41 million to support the construction and operation of the Hazer Process Commercial Development Project.

The Hazer Process Commercial Demonstration Project is a 100 ton per annum low emission hydrogen production facility that will be the first large scale, fully integrated deployment of the Hazer Process. The Hazer Commercial Demonstration Project is proposed to be located at the Water Corporation’s Woodman Point Waste-Water Treatment Plant, utilising biogas produced at the treatment plant as feedstock to produce hydrogen and graphite.

The design and construction phase of the Project is scheduled to be completed in December 2020, with operations running from January 2021 to December 2023. The Commercial Demonstration Project has an estimated capital cost of $15.8 million.
