Major entities sign hydrogen agreement

The MoU outlines areas of cooperation involving the development and future commercialisation of the metal membrane technology (MMT) which has been developed by the CSIRO, supported by a partnership with Fortescue, and would provide the potential for bulk transportation of hydrogen through ammonia.

Hyundai will seek to demonstrate the viability of this technology for renewable hydrogen production and vehicle fuelling in Korea.

Fortescue Deputy CEO Julie Shuttleworth said this partnership was important in the pursuit of a low carbon future.

“It builds on our investment in new hydrogen technologies that ensures Fortescue is well-positioned to meet the demand for hydrogen as both an export opportunity and to contribute to the decarbonisation of our operations in the Pilbara,” she said.

“A domestic and export hydrogen industry will require a highly collaborative approach,” said CSIRO Executive Director for Environment Energy and Resources Dr Peter Mayfield.

“We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Fortescue, alongside Hyundai, to ensure that hydrogen can play a role in supporting low emissions transport.”
