HydGene Renewables

To achieve a net-zero and sustainable circular economy requires new solutions in utilising our waste sources. Often burnt in the field or buried as landfill, plant-based biomass from the forestry, farming and food sectors is a massive untapped resource for bioenergy production. Decarbonising industries with clean hydrogen will be key for achieving global net-zero targets. Hydrogen can provide a ‘cure-all’ solution to meet growing fuel and fertiliser needs; and provide a cost-competitive off-grid solution for electricity generation. However, hydrogen today first needs to be decarbonised as more than 99% is made from fossil-fuels. While efforts to make green hydrogen at scale using electrolysers and large-scale renewable sources are increasing, the greater challenge is getting low-cost hydrogen to the end-user. Transport and storage of hydrogen is complex and can more than triple the final cost of the hydrogen for the customer. Our solution simplifies this problem by safely producing low-cost hydrogen on-site and on-demand. Our robust biocatalyst solution is highly efficient at converting sugars into high-purity hydrogen from a wide variety of biomass sources. Compared to other renewable processes, our footprint of production is small; and we can make hydrogen 24-7 to fill the renewable energy gap.

Intangible Matters Series Going Global Strategies for Success

When it comes to exporting, success or failure often comes down to two things. First, whether you can create an ‘unfair advantage’ or ‘competitive edge’ for your product or service that will transfer across markets; and secondly, how well you’ve done your due diligence (or pre-departure checks) on the markets you are moving into before you hit go on your strategy.
