Key takeaways:

1. CSIRO, and Standards Australia have launched a new resource called HyStandards to help the find the relevant Australian and international standards for hydrogen projects.

HyStandards is a highly visual and interactive tool allowing users to select from five different scenarios to reveal a comprehensive list of applicable Australian and international standards. With more than 100 hydrogen-relevant standards in the database, users can filter standards for equipment type or use, then either access the standards or download the list.

2. Fortescue plans to eliminate all Scope 1 and 2 emissions from its operations by 2030 and achieve Net Zero Scope 3 emissions by 2040.

As a carrier for hydrogen, ammonia can be transported to demand centres for power generation and as a marine fuel in support of the energy transition. Several dual-fueled ammonia vessels have been ordered by shipowners. Fortescue, with the support of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), has successfully conducted the world's first use of ammonia, in combination with diesel in the combustion process, as a marine fuel onboard the Singapore-flagged ammonia-powered vessel, the Fortescue Green Pioneer, in the Port of Singapore.

3. The massive green iron opportunity is there for Australia to develop, but it requires strategic public capital investment and a decarbonised grid.

To facilitate and lock in opportunities for the development of green iron, Australian iron ore majors should be paying far more attention to targeting meaningful and credible reductions in their Scope 3 (exported) emissions, and directing capex to decarbonisation accordingly. On green steel, the Australian federal government should be incentivising domestic demand “pull” encouraging steel firms to pivot from outdated coal-powered blast furnaces to electric arc furnace technologies.      

4. AGLs existing thermal assets provide suitable locations for futureIndustrial Energy Hubs

The “Hunter Energy Hub” project proponents are undertaking studies to explore the development of a renewables-based hydrogen and ammonia production facility in the Hunter Valley region of New South Wales. The proposed facility forms part of a AGL ‘Hunter Energy Hub’ development, that would combine grid-scale batteries, solar thermal storage, wind and pumped hydro, mapped key operational and commercial plans for the project as well as developing a production timeline.

5. Japan’s Tokyo Gas and Autralian LNG producer, Santos Tokyo Gas, are joining forces to produce e-methane in Australia and ship it to Japan.

E-methane is made by combining green hydrogen and CO2 obtained from carbon capture of industrial emissions or direct air capture (DAC) technology. Tokyo gas and its partners will evaluate the potential to produce e-methane for export to Japan, leveraging extensive existing infrastructure. The partners target first production of e-methane for 2030. Tokyo Gas is also part of a consortium looking into the possibility of producing synthetic methane (e-methane) and liquefying it at Sempra’s Cameron LNG plant in the US.
