Tlou Energy Limited is concentrated on delivering secure, sustainable, and clean up electricity remedies in Botswana and sub‐Saharan Africa. At the Lesedi Electric power Task (“Lesedi”) Tlou and hydrogen engineering partner Synergen Fulfilled are working on combining huge, recognized purely natural fuel reserves with considerable solar electrical power to deliver eco-friendly hydrogen, therefore supplying a complementary selection of cleaner and greener electricity era alternatives.

Crucial Details:

  • Environmentally friendly Hydrogen creation planned at Lesedi in 2022
  • Prototype Engineering continuing to schedule
  • Net Zero CO2 emissions prospective and the probability to deliver Carbon Credits
  • Synergen Met IPO prepared in the coming months

The Enterprise has secured a 10MW Electric power Acquire Agreement (PPA) with Botswana Ability Company, and energy dispatch underneath this PPA will assistance displace present carbon‐intensive ability. The building of transmission lines to join Lesedi to the existing energy grid is predicted to be finished in 2023.

The prototype hydrogen output device is getting developed, created and tested in Brisbane prior to transportation to Lesedi in 1H22, when creation trials will commence. The effective manufacturing of hydrogen and stable carbon solutions could permit the Corporation to accomplish early‐stage revenue ahead of gas‐to‐power earnings underneath the 10MW PPA.

Hydrogen Prototype Design and style

The Company’s hydrogen engineering associate Synergen Achieved Pty Ltd (“SM”), a top expert in plasma torch and pyrolysis technological know-how, has informed the Enterprise that preliminary engineering for their hydrogen‐carbon production system has been concluded. The plasma torch will be examined and configured to optimise hydrogen and stable carbon manufacturing.

A specialist engineering enterprise (Kemplant) has been engaged to help with the prototype engineering to permit detailed layout and fabrication to commence. Tests of the plasma torch to establish the optimum parameters for the production of hydrogen and solid carbon is progressing.

Net Zero CO2 emissions opportunity

At the time the prototype comes at Lesedi it will utilise Tlou’s existing fuel flows to generate hydrogen and good carbon by‐products. Net Zero CO2 emissions opportunity will be realized subsequent the planned addition of Solar PV electrical power.

The use of plasma know-how for hydrogen output will be a 1st for the sub‐Saharan location and could have key implications for the output of very low emissions, clean up strength across the region – likewise in the associated fields of waste‐to‐energy and squander disposal.

Tlou and SM intend to use the hydrogen developed from the prototype to create energy and quite possibly for transport gasoline (to begin with in Tlou’s possess vehicles). Good carbon will be created offered for regional shoppers that require the product. Earth marketplaces for hydrogen and reliable carbon black are predicted to develop considerably in excess of the quick and medium time period. SM think about that their approach fulfills the definition of inexperienced hydrogen manufacturing via their plasma torch gasoline pyrolysis style and design.

Synergen Achieved IPO

SM is organizing to record on the ASX in the coming months and is at this time heading by the pre‐IPO course of action. Really should this commence, beneath the Heads of Settlement between Tlou and SM, Tlou may well take part in the IPO for up to US$3m. The Organization sees substantial upside for a likely investment in SM presented comparisons with comparable mentioned entities.

Tlou not only sees sizeable scope for Tlou’s hydrogen and good carbon items in just sub‐ Saharan Africa but also for SM’s know-how in relation to squander disposal. Rendering of otherwise harmful squander into inert merchandise, or usually landfill organic waste into strength, is meant to form a central pillar of SM’s aims employing their distinctive plasma technology.

The Corporation notes substantial legislative, environmental, and economical motorists at the rear of the developments of these things to do, drivers which are predicted to intensify and endure.

The agreement with SM offers substantial progress probable for the Corporation in that it generates an different route to sector for Tlou’s gasoline in Botswana, even though introducing significant benefit carbon and carbon products to the probable earnings streams.

Tony Gilby, Tlou’s Taking care of Director, stated

Tlou is properly innovative in terms of approvals and agreements to commercialise our fuel. With continued encouraging gas flows from Lesedi and the development of further means to monetise our fuel, we are about to enter a very fascinating time for our corporation. With the possible for Synergen Met to mature alongside Tlou, we see the development of a mutually gratifying and extremely useful connection.”

The desire for cleaner sources of ability is increasing around the world and with Tlou’s means to build electrical power and hydrogen jobs, the Business is very very well positioned to just take gain of favourable current market situations.
