Patriot Units

Modular Hydrogen Production Units

Our state-of-the-art technology extracts hydrogen from biomass energy , which is why we call it ‘turning waste into revenue’. The modular Patriot Units use a clean pyrolysis process to convert the discarded materials into five high-value revenue streams — syngas (dense hydrogen) for fuel or generating electricity into the grid,  biochar, carbon credits and  wood vinegar for fertiliser.

The 100% renewable model involves slowly heating biomass in an oxygen-free chamber without burning it, meaning there is no carbon being polluted into the atmosphere.  

Before the emergence of the Patriot Units, companies had to invest in multi-billion-dollar facilities, which are stationary and highly expensive to move, to generate hydrogen power. The mobility of these units means businesses in Australia can produce hydrogen in previously inaccessible locations and easily transport them to the next site.

Benefits:

These versatile units have the capability of grid-firming electricity in regional communities, with the Australian government expecting them to commercially challenge diesel by 2025.

Heats biomass slowly in an oxygen-free chamber without burning it, so no emissions are generated. Instead, the carbon is captured by the remaining biochar, which is a charcoal-like substance that has applications in multiple industries such as livestock (feed), agriculture (fertiliser), and construction (cement). 

Cost-effective because they use waste products like wood chips and are self-powered through the hydrogen created.

The mobility of the units will allow us to establish a network of hydrogen plants across Australia at remote locations.

Pressure Swing Adsorption

Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) is the process of recovering and purifying the hydrogen from rich sources such as syngas. Patriot is one of the few commercial operations globally offering this cutting-edge technology, which is the best-known technique for producing the purest hydrogen.

The Advantages:

It acts as a filter, capturing all the hydrogen passing through, reducing energy use, continuous operation, higher conversion and a smaller carbon footprint.

PSA produces hydrogen at a 99.9999% purity with a recovery rate of 90%.

Separation and purification account for 20% of total expenditure for organisations in this industry. Due to its effectiveness and accuracy, PSA can significantly reduce these costs.
