Sweetman Renewables power hydrogen production with sawmill biomass
Sweetman Renewables has announced that it is currently negotiating with a number of sawmills and wood processing companies to close a deal for their biomass to power hydrogen production.
The company plans to use the biomass to produce domestic renewable energy including H2 for export.
In a recent media release from the company, John Halkett, chair at Sweetman Renewables, called the ongoing discussions encouraging. The company is in talks with forest and plantation owners and contractors in order to secure the biomass supply left by the process of sawlog harvesting. This biomass would be used for producing renewable energy and for hydrogen production. “Negotiations with sawmill and wood processing companies to supply biomass for export for bioenergy production in Japan and for domestic renewable energy utilisation are encouraging and ongoing,” said Halkett. “This includes supplying biomass to the Verdant Earth Technologies renewable baseload power station at Singleton, New South Wales, and also for domestic green hydrogen production.”
