Australia's first solar powered Direct Air Capture (DAC) units
Direct Air Capture (DAC) units suck in air, extract CO2 & then store it underground or make it available for other uses (greenhouses, algae farms, concrete production). Stripping CO2 from air can be energy-intensive, reducing the overall benefit. But Southern Green Gas (SGG), an Australian company, is trialling a new solar-powered DAC technology.The SGG DACs are small (about the size of 2 household fridges), so can be set up in an array much like a solar farm. With the added benefit of local manufacturing & creating globally tradeable negative emissions certificates - this is one worth watching.https://www.southerngreengas.com.au/negative-emissions.html

Offshore hydrogen
ERM’s Dolphyn (Deepwater Offshore Local Production of HYdrogeN) project is exploring offshore hydrogen production option - a 10MW floating wind turbine with built-in electrolyser will convert sea water into green hydrogen. There is no water constraint, no electricity grid connection issue and the hydrogen can be shipped out by ammonia-powered vessel soon (EU’s ShipFC project)? https://www.theengineer.co.uk/erm-dolphyn-green-hydrogen/

Decarbonizing heavy industries: German steel giant wants to set up 500 MW green hydrogen plant
I think this is a crucial and most feasible case of green hydrogen utilization. Here just one example I just came across from my home country.German energy company Steag is helping Thyssenkrupp decarbonize its steel production site in Duisburg-Walsum. Green hydrogen generation is expected to be powered by a mix of wind and solar power.Link to article: https://www.pv-magazine.com/2021/02/26/german-steel-giant-wants-to-set-up-500-mw-green-hydrogen-plant/Feel free to reach out to me and connect here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/reneleven/

RESET by Ross Garnaut | Restoring Australia after the great crash of 2020
"We have the lowest energy costs in a zero emissions world and it becomes an advantage in processing Australian minerals. That can become a huge industry.We also have big advantages in our huge areas of land for capturing carbon in plants, in the soil, exporting carbon credits, growing biomass for industry because we won't be making plastics and petrochemicals out of oil, gas and coal, we'll be making them out of biomass and if we get our act together we can do that more cheaply than others."...https://www.abc.net.au/7.30/what-will-the-post-covid-economy-look-like/13194362
