Fortescue Future Industries To Support Indonesia’s Gunung Raja Paksi On Green Hydrogen


Fortescue Future Industries (FFI) and PT Gunung Raja Paksi Tbk (GRP) – a member of Gunung Steel Group and one of the largest steelmakers in Indonesia – will investigate how green hydrogen and green ammonia supplied by FFI could be used to help decarbonize GRP’s steelmaking factories. Fortescue Chairman and Founder, Dr. Andrew Forrest AO, and GRP Member of the Executive Committee Kimin Tanoto have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at the B20 Summit in Bali, Indonesia. The use of green hydrogen could allow GRP to produce low-emission steel in what is a particularly hard-to-abate sector. Under the MOU, the companies will seek to identify mutually beneficial opportunities to collaborate on green hydrogen and/or green ammonia technology and implementation, as well as offtake opportunities.

EDPR Sunseap Signs MOU with PlasticBean to Explore Opportunities For the Usage of Recycled Plastic in Floating Solar Projects

EDPR Sunseap, the Asia Pacific platform of EDP Renewables, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with PlasticBean, which is part of the sustainable materials engineering Group, Archwey. The MOU’s purpose is to explore the use of plastic that is 100% recycled in future floating photovoltaic solar farm projects in Indonesia, Singapore, and South Korea. The recycled plastic, BLUEWAVE®, is a thermoplastic material derived from marine plastics, ocean-bound plastics, post-consumer waste, and post-industrial waste. Collected at riverbanks and coastal areas in some of the most polluted regions in the world, it gives new life to plastic waste that would otherwise end up in our oceans. 100% recycled and recyclable, BLUEWAVE® pellets can be used to make the floating pontoons that keep solar farms afloat.
