Pure Hydrogen Corporation Limited (Pure Hydrogen) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Wildfire Energy Pty Limited (Wildfire) today, with the parties planning to supply hydrogen to customers from commercial waste using Wildfire’s proprietary Moving Injection Horizontal Gasification (MIHG) technology.
Wildfire Energy is a private Australian renewable energy company turning waste into renewable energy and hydrogen using its MHIG 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 contaminants for hydrogen to be separated and purified for end-use.
Wildfire Energy will deliver its plant south of Brisbane targeting hydrogen production of 1,500 kg per day, which Pure Hydrogen will resell to end-users through its planned network of hydrogen hubs.
This adds another distribution and storage point for Pure Hydrogen around Brisbane, the Gold Coast and surrounding areas aligning with the company’s strategy of building a network of hydrogen storage and distribution hubs across the nation.
The MoU is subject to customary Condition Precedents including Due Diligence and demonstration of the capability of the technology and execution of a formal commercial agreement between Pure Hydrogen and Wildfire.
In commenting on the news, Pure Hydrogen’s Managing Director, Scott Brown, said: “We are excited to work with Wildfire Energy as they utilise their unique new technology which will broaden the scope of our hydrogen-producing operations.”
“It is further evidence of the strong momentum occurring in the business and the scale of operations that we are assembling. 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 clean, green hydrogen fuel to industry and consumers in relatively short order. We very much look forward to reporting on progress.”
