Australian Company Receives $4.5m Investment For Hydrogen

Queensland-based hydrogen energy storage company Hydrexia received $4.5 million from Southern Cross Renewable Fund, which was matched dollar-for-dollar by Softbank China Venture Capital (SBCVC) in a total investment of $9.25 million.

Hydrexia’s new hydrogen storage technology, based on a hydride of a magnesium alloy, is said to have a higher energy storage density, that is, storing more hydrogen in less space. It also stores it at a lower pressure, thus reducing costs.

French company Air Liquide also made investments in Hydrexia, a move that its Vice-President Francois Darchis says will offer its industrial customers a “particularly innovative solution.”
