Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) project partners are pleased to announce that the carbon offset arrangements for the pilot project have now been finalised.

The HESC project partners have entered into an arrangement with South Pole to invest in Australian Carbon Credit Units (ACCUs) which will contribute towards the Boobera Carbon Project in Queensland. This will offset emissions from the HESC Pilot project, ensuring the project can support a low-carbon future in Australia from its pilot phase.

Should the project proceed to commercialisation emissions from the brown coal gasification process would be managed through carbon capture and storage (CCS).

HESC has an important role to play in government and industry’s efforts to responsibly transition to a secure, economically viable, low carbon energy future.
