Hatch, Anglo American, BHP, and Fortescue have formed a Green Hydrogen Consortium to look at ways of using green hydrogen to accelerate decarbonisation within their operations globally.

Primarily, the Consortium aims to collectively help to eliminate the obstacles to the adoption of green hydrogen technologies and encourage innovative application.

The goal is to identify opportunities to develop green hydrogen technologies for the resources sector and other heavy industries, and provide a mechanism for suppliers and operators to contribute to and engage with these development activities.

Some of the proposed activities include undertaking research, technology, and supply chain development, as well as piloting green hydrogen technologies to seek to de-risk and accelerate the technologies.

The companies involved in the Consortium are committed to reducing their respective operational greenhouse gas emissions and to working collaboratively with others - including customers and suppliers - to find technological or other innovative solutions for the emissions associated with the use of their products and in their supply chains.

Hatch has been appointed as the project management and governance facilitator of the Green Hydrogen Consortium.
