Scientists and engineers from the technology team at Verum Group led and delivered a New Zealand Government investment in a four-year research project into 'Hydrogen and Clean Energy'. It was jointly undertaken with IRL (who developed the electrolyser component of the technology package), with collaboration from the University of Canterbury.
The project created the technology platform required to allow New Zealand to develop new energy technologies to help New Zealand meet the challenges of global climate change and peak oil. The team developed a new process technology based on the integration of co-fired coal-biomass gasification and a new electrolyser system design for co-production of hydrogen plus syngas for Fischer-Tropsch production.
