Natural hydrogen is a primary source of energy and holds great decarbonization potential.

Utilizing H2site's membrane separation technology, the plant aims to recover over 95% of the available hydrogen while separating valuable co-products such as helium.

“The collaboration with Gold Hydrogen underscores our shared commitment to the natural hydrogen market growth. H2site is thrilled to contribute with its membrane separation technology, enabling sustainable and cost-efficient hydrogen production,” said Andres Galnares, CEO of H2site.

H2site says that the Yorke Peninsula project represents a significant step forward in the natural hydrogen space, with one of the first wells showcasing unprecedented levels of H2 concentration.

Established in 2020, H2site has exclusive technology for reactors and separators, facilitating the conversion of various feedstocks into hydrogen. These include ammonia, methanol, or synthetic gas, as well as the separation of hydrogen from gaseous mixtures in low concentrations for applications in salt caverns or natural hydrogen.
