Hazer enters deal with Water Corp

Hazer and Water Corporation have executed a binding gas supply agreement and collaboration deed that will see gas produced at the Woodman Point Wastewater Treatment Plant supplied to the Hazer Process Commercial Demonstration Plant for three years, beginning in 2021.

The Hazer plant will be constructed at the Woodman Point site in Western Australia and the new agreement covers the responsibilities of both parties during its development, construction and operation.

The demonstration plant will produce 100 t per year of low emission hydrogen, which the company said will be fuel cell grade and capable of being used for transport.

The project is receiving support from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) and last month Hazer’s board approved a capital expenditure budget of $16.65 million for the plant.

Hazer Managing Director Geoff Ward said the company was “delighted” by the deal with Water Corporation.

“We gratefully acknowledge the ongoing collaboration with Water Corporation, as well as the ongoing support from ARENA, and look forward to continuing to work with them to make this exciting project a success,” he said.

The company expects to make a final investment decision on the project later this year.
