Patriot Hydrogen has signed multiple contracts with a sawmill in Millfield, NSW, to develop a biomass-to-renewable-energy and biochar plant.
The Mill will provide Patriot with the land, energy off-take, and wood waste to complete the project.
Under the agreements, Patriot will construct a biomass-to-energy facility on the sawmill’s site using its wood waste as feedstock, then sell the renewable electricity produced back to the Mill to reduce its reliance on fossil fuel-derived power.
The partnership also helps to decarbonise the sawmill through the production of biochar, generating carbon credits, and reducing emissions output.
Patriot is booking shipping dates to transport the Plant from its location at Nhava Sheva Port, India’s second-largest container port, to Port Botany in Sydney.
Patriot Hydrogen is anticipating the plant to arrive at the Mill before Christmas 2022.
As Patriot scales up production, the Company believes the location of the Millfield sawmill, in the heart of the Hunter region, provides a substantial opportunity to expand the facility to produce green hydrogen in phase 2.
Overall, the Company believes it has gone from strength to strength in 2022, with the market clearly showing a demand for its Patriot Units which create five high-value revenue streams — hydrogen for transport, syngas for renewable power, biochar for farming, carbon credits, and wood vinegar for pest control.
Glenn Davies, Patriot Chairman, said, “The sawmill is currently buying all of its power from the grid, and this project replaces 100% of the fossil fuel being used with the clean electricity the Patriot Units produce.”
