The CDP is a 100 t/a low emission hydrogen production facility that will generate fuel cell grade hydrogen capable for use in power generation, industrial applications or transport fuel.

Hazer’s CDP will be located at Water Corporation’s Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant in Munster, Western Australia and will use the biogas produced at this facility as a feedstock for hydrogen and graphite.

Hazer Group Managing Director Geoff Ward said the FID was a significant project milestone.

“The Hazer CDP is a key step in demonstrating the commercial readiness of our technology to the growing national, international, low-emission hydrogen market,” he said.

“It will increase the utilisation of waste resources, improve civic infrastructure and offer new economic opportunities through the development of graphite-manufacturing opportunities and hydrogen for transport or clean energy.”

Primero Group is the engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the project, with pre-commissioning activities due to commence in Q2 2021 before practical completion mid-year.

Hazer anticipates the project will operate for up to three years or until the end of 2023, depending on future operational plans for the Woodman Point facility.

The project is expected to cost about $17 million, with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) contributing up to $9.41 million.
