Pure Hydrogen to produce Turquoise hydrogen; Sonangol hydrogen plant in Angola

Turquoise Hydrogen is a cleaner use of natural gas (methane), and Graphene has many emerging applications.

Australia’s Pure Hydrogen Corporation Limited to produce Turquoise Hydrogen by signing a binding collaboration and licence term sheet with French technology company Plenesys to commercialise the Plenesys HyPlasma process.

The collaboration will commence with a pilot plant (demonstration plant) in Brisbane, planned for commissioning within the next 12 months, followed by full commercial scale modules in our exclusive markets in Australia, Asia Pacific and Sub Saharan Africa.

Pure Hydrogen has been investigating Methane Pyrolysis (Turquoise Hydrogen) for the last two years and plans to use the HyPlasma process to prove commercial manufacturing of clean energy products: hydrogen and value-add carbon products, including Graphene, from natural gas and bio-methane.

Commercial-scale operation planned with capacities of 1,500 kg up to 5,000 kg per day of hydrogen, and 4,500 kg up to 15,000 kg per day of carbon products.

Pure Hydrogen will have exclusive rights to commercialise the HyPlasma process in Australia and other key South-East Asian countries and southern Africa for an initial 10-year period, with options to extend the length of exclusivity and add new regions.

Sonangol green hydrogen in Angola

​Sonangol is working on creating a strategy to produce green hydrogen, carrying out conceptual and engineering studies, and identifying the location to install a factory to produce hydrogen and its derivatives, in Angola, for domestic consumption and export.

The initiative is part of the company’s energy transition strategy, in the search for renewable energy resources, developed in partnership with the German companies Conjuncta GmbH and Gauff GmbH & Co. Engineering Kg, who signed, among themselves, an agreement for the implementation of a plant for the production of green hydrogen in Angola.

Due to their geographical characteristics, hypsometric and abundance of water resources, Angola stands out as having high potential in renewable energy sources.

Sonangol,  reaffirms its commitment to the energy transition by implementing local solutions to produce alternative energy sources that preserve the environment.
