Hazer Group was founded in 2010 to commercialise technology originally developed at the University of Western Australia, and the Company listed on the ASX in December 2015.
Prior to listing, over eight years was spent developing the underlying Hazer Process, using natural gas and unprocessed iron ore to create low cost, low-emission “clean” hydrogen, considered to be a key fuel in the transition to low carbon economy. In addition to the hydrogen product, the Hazer Process produces synthetic graphite, used in lithium ion batteries, lubrication and industrial applications.
In early 2016 Hazer developed a research partnership with the University of Sydney, and established their core development operations within the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Sydney. Kemplant assisted with the construction and development of a demonstration plant in Sydney which is working towards scaling up the Hazer Process into larger commercial sized plants.
