Hazer’s CEO Geoff Ward said: “We are very pleased that these important milestones have been achieved and we look forward to seeing the results from the PTR Pilot Plant over the coming months as we progress our collaboration with Mineral Resources to develop a commercial synthetic graphite production facility.

“With regards to the Hazer FBR program the outstanding results achieved in 2018 have given us the confidence to proceed into front-end engineering and design (FEED) studies for a Commercial Demonstration Plant (CDP).

Studies to be complete in April, FID mid-2019

“As previously advised these studies have progressed well and are expected to be completed in April. We are continuing to work with potential off-take hydrogen partners, gas suppliers and project funders to bring together the first commercial Hazer facility.

"We are targeting securing all the necessary project agreements to take a final investment decision on the CDP by mid-2019, with a projected commencement date for the Commercial Demonstration Plant of Q4 2020.”
