Site tour B
Infinite Blue Energy drives a sustainable green hydrogen future by using water, solar and wind energy without any carbon emission. One of its project would be the Arrowsmith Project that is located in Western Australia which targeted to produce 25 tonnes of green hydrogen per day from the zero carbon energy source of water, solar and wind. The green hydrogen will be produced by the plant through renewable energy from 65MW of solar energy and 90MW wind and this will captured 119,000 tonnes per annum of CO2 emission.
