Hazer Group Limited plan to relocate its FBR Pilot Plant from Sydney to Kwinana in Perth next to the proposed Mineral Resources Limited Paddle Tube Reactor (PTR) Pilot Plant. The relocation and scheduled first graphite production from the MRL PTR plant is planned for Q4 2018. Hazer Acting CEO Mark Edwards said that “This is an important step in the commercialisation of the Hazer process because we see great synergies, cost savings and benefits in locating the two plants together at MRL’s site in Kwinana so they can both produce graphite and hydrogen for further testing but also showcase our technology to the world.”

In December 2017, Hazer and MRL executed a binding Cooperation Agreement to work together for the purposes of developing and commercialising the Hazer Technology. Under the terms of the agreement, MRL is providing all capital required for a staged development project for graphite production and Hazer has given MRL access to the existing Hazer IP portfolio, as well as technical assistance and support.

Mr Edwards, said that “This pending agreement is an outstanding deal for Hazer because it allows the paddle tube technology which is ideal for graphite production to be developed using the larger capital resources of Mineral Resources while we provide the technical support and know-how of the Hazer process technology.”
