Project summary description:
The Monash Technology Precinct aims to be net-zero by 2030. Within the precinct, there are several possible applications of hydrogen, including buses and trucks. There are also several users of liquid nitrogen (currently trucked in) on site. The liquid nitrogen generation process creates liquid hydrogen as a by-product. This feasibility study would look at the possibility of generating liquid nitrogen on-site (as well as renewable hydrogen to then be used to reduce fossil fuel use across the precinct).

This type of study is important because it is looking at how hydrogen can complement existing needs, remove upfront capital cost barriers, and solve two problems at once.
