H2i Technology releases results on hydrogen enhancement kits

Following a successful capital raise earlier this year, H2i Technology’s commercial testing has proven its revolutionary hydrogen enhancement kits can generate substantial emission reductions and fuel savings for diesel internal combustion engines.

The Testing Showed:

  • Reduced emissions of diesel internal combustion engines with:
    • Reduced exhaust smoke by 49%.
    • Reduced exhaust opacity by 50%.
  • Cut fuel usage by 11%, with the potential to reach 20% on some older engines.
  • Savings of ~ $90,000 per unit on fuel costs each year when running a 250KVA generator, with more significant savings on larger-scale diesel engines.
  • Each unit will cut carbon emissions by 300 tonnes per year.
  • Allows companies to access the lucrative carbon credits system.
  • Interest from underground mining companies as the smoke reduction carries major health benefits for their employees working on-site.

The Company will be launching its Series B Capital Raise to fund the development of a commercial prototype, which will be ready for market in Q4 2022.

Pure Biochar shares are going quickly

The Pure Biochar capital raise is on track to being fully subscribed following its launch via the online platform VCEX.
With shares going quickly, get in now so you do not miss out on this pre-IPO opportunity.
The company has already commenced conversations with potential offtakers in these sectors — which has a collective market size of US$11t — who are looking at how they can decarbonise their value chain.
As they are first to market, Pure Biochar believes there is scope to form large, long-term contracts with these entities.
Once these are in place, Pure Biochar will seek a planned listing on a favourable exchange in Q1 2023 to finance the construction of Australia’s first industrial-scale biochar production facility.

Poseidon Marine H2 engages Bureau Veritas & Envesta Consulting

Poseidon Marine H2’s technical partner Dynamic Efficiency has engaged Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore to lead the certification process so the company’s technical solution, which will allow boats to operate on diesel and hydrogen fuels, can be underwritten by insurers.
With the finite element analysis due to be complete in August, Poseidon Marine H2 expects to have the technology underwritten by end of Q3 2022.
Bureau Veritas is a legacy company with nearly 200 years’ experience in this field, making them the perfect partner to ensure Poseidon Marine H2’s technology gets certification for insurance coverage,” says Peter Mastalir, Poseidon Marine H2’s Principal Engineer & Director.
Once secured, having their technology underwritten by insurers will make their product commercially accessible & viable to potential customers.
“Bureau Veritas will also provide our technology with third-party validation from a company with a longstanding reputation as being one of the best testing, inspection and certification consultants in the world.”
The company says they have accelerated the certification process by taking Avesta Consulting, which is completing the finite element analysis stages, to Bureau Veritas’ Adelaide office.
By end of Q3 2022, the company will have a proof of concept, provisional patent and certification to allow insurance coverage, which will help them to finalise agreements with large boat manufacturers.
The company will also be targeting substantial industrial/public contracts with defence forces, ferry operators, police bodies and other major maritime sectors around the world.

Iconic EV outlines pathway to a planned IPO

After seeing significant demand, Iconic EV believes targeting Australia’s historic car market, which has an annual spend of A$2.2b, will provide a clear pathway to a planned IPO in the next 18 months.
The company intends to seek a listing to finance the construction of Australia’s first large-scale electric vehicle conversion facility so they can meet the rapidly growing demand.
With most countries around the world looking to phase out fossil fuels, Iconic EV will deliver a service to vintage car owners who will need to convert their vehicles to ensure their longevity and avoid excessive taxes/fuel prices.
With limited shares available you will not want to miss out on this pre-IPO opportunity!

Europe looks to Australia for green hydrogen amid energy crisis

The Sydney Morning Herald has reported that Europe’s biggest hydrogen project — the Port of Rotterdam — is looking to Australian imports to help quadruple supplies of clean energy.

Reduced emissions of diesel internal combustion engines with:

  • The Port of Rotterdam wants to scale up the supply of Australian hydrogen in one of the world’s biggest projects to import and generate the clean and transportable fuel.
  • The project believes Australia can help cut the continent’s reliance on natural gas in the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
  • Port executives looked at more than a dozen countries and concluded Australia could produce hydrogen at a competitive price due to the cost profile of its renewable energy sources, even after adding the cost of shipping to the Netherlands.
This acknowledgment marks an important step for Australia as it begins to move toward becoming a global leader in hydrogen to help the world decarbonise and overcome the global energy crisis.

Hydrogen plans unlocking potential in undervalued PH2: Breakaway Research

Stockhead has reported that Breakaway Research believes that a valuation of 54c is a more accurate picture of Pure Hydrogen’s worth given its exposure to the rapidly growing hydrogen sector.
Not only is the company collaborating with French company Plenesys for the commercialisation of methane pyrolysis plants to produce “turquoise” hydrogen, which is underpinned by its existing 600 petajoules of 2C gas resources in Queensland and Botswana, it also has exposure to fuel cell and fuel cell development through its 23% stake in H2X Global.
Breakaway noted that this combination of large gas resources, intellectual property, strategic investments in other corporations and partnerships with other specialist companies meant that a valuation range of between 32c to 90c, with 54c being a best estimate, is more appropriate than Pure Hydrogen’s (ASX:PH2) current 23c price.
While natural gas remains the biggest value driver, the company’s plans to produce carbon-free hydrogen, its distribution and application to vehicle fleets is increasingly valuable.

Australia’s first industrial-scale producer of green fertiliser launches

H2Gro has launched with ambitions to develop Australia’s green fertiliser industry and expects to have a commercially operating production facility by Q4 2023.
The company was formed after seeing the impact of the global shortage in fertilisers which has led to subsequent price increases and is threatening the supply chain for Australian farmers.
“To combat this global challenge, H2Gro was established with the ambition of building a homegrown green fertiliser industry to ensure sovereignty over the nation’s food & agriculture supply,” says H2Gro Director, Tim Brooks.
“Over 90% of urea is currently imported, with Western Australia, in particular, depending on Russian imports of urea ammonium nitrate.”
The company intends to fill this large gap in the market by becoming Australia’s first industrial manufacturer of green urea fertiliser, which will help provide reliable supply for the Australian $5.3b fertiliser industry and lower the current reliance on importing carbon-intensive fertiliser from overseas manufacturers.
The company’s Directors have begun leveraging their strong network of relationships in Western Australia through discussions with potential offtakers, to secure land for production and gain access to the 10 million tonnes of biomass waste that can be used to produce the fertiliser.

Australia’s first carbon-free airline launches

LibertyAir has launched with plans to become Australia’s first green airline and will initially target high-traffic short trips.
In the coming weeks, the company is set to partner with a technology provider that can deliver carbon-free aircraft.
The airline will be cost-competitive, as the fuel will be much cheaper than jet-a fuel, which is experiencing record price rises and is extremely bad for the environment.
Some of the routes the company is considering are Sydney to Newcastle, Sydney to Orange or Cairns to the Great Barrier Reef.
