This granted Australian Patent is in addition to two previous Australian Innovation Patents granted in December 2018, and certified in February and April 2019.
Hazer is continuing to progress two additional Australian Patent applications and will report on their progress as milestones as notification of grant is received.
Hazer’s CEO Geoff Ward said: “This is the first granted standard patent in Hazer’s intellectual property portfolio protecting the Hazer Process - a significant milestone for Hazer and its team.
“This granted standard patent, together with the certified innovation patents, provide a solid foundation for Hazer’s intellectual property position in Australia and protection to our commercial development strategy.”
Hazer has had a busy start to 2019 as it continued to progress its core development pathways for the Hazer Process.
This included securing a commercial demonstration plant (CDP) to fully demonstrate a working commercial hydrogen production facility based on the Hazer Process.
It also included supporting Mineral Resources Ltd (ASX:MIN) with the commissioning of a graphite focussed pilot plant developed under the binding collaboration agreement between the companies.
