California, US-based ReCarbon has partnered with Australian bioenergy developer Utilitas Group to build biogas-to-hydrogen plants across Australia.

ReCarbon, developer of the patented Plasma Carbon Conversion Unit – a greenhouse gas utilisation technology – announced the execution of a memorandum of understanding with the Australian company on 10 June.

ReCarbon president and CEO Dr Jay Kim said: “We are pleased to collaborate with Utilitas to seek to establish production plants that will not only create a new supply of renewable hydrogen but simultaneously address greenhouse gas emissions from biomass.”
