MTC to help Australian green energy company with the production of green hydrogen

Coventry based Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) says it is supporting Australian Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) in its effort to produce 15m tonnes of green hydrogen a year by 2030.

In order to achieve net-zero targets, green hydrogen technology is becoming increasingly popular across industries to improve future manufacturing.

FFI is aiming to build a portfolio of renewable hydropower, geothermal, wind and solar assets globally.

MTC will use its innovative research to support FFI’s growth agenda to help renewable green hydrogen become globally available and affordable by the end of the decade. The key to this is the establishment of production capability.

Huw Sullivan, hydrogen leader at the MTC said: “Supporting the delivery of net-zero, including green hydrogen, is core to our vision for future manufacturing and creating clean growth jobs.

“Through our Liverpool, Midlands and South East UK facilities we are engaged to support the next generation of green manufacturing technologies to ensure clean growth and stimulate investment in the UK supply chain. It is pleasing that now our impact is being recognised globally through engaging with one of the leading champions of green energy, Fortescue Future

“Green hydrogen is critical to meeting net zero emissions targets, providing clean energy for homes, businesses and transport, and we at the MTC are well placed to help companies set up and deliver through modern methods of manufacture.”
