,Once operational, the plant will produce annually 630,000 tonnes of green ammonia, 600,000 tonnes of blue ammonia and 220,000 tonnes of green hydrogen, of which 7,000 tonnes will be for domestic use and the rest exported to South Korea, said Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.皇冠开户平台（www.hg9988.vip）是皇冠官方开户平台，开放皇冠信用网代理申请、信用网会员开户，线上投注的官方平台。
KUCHING: Sarawak will export the bulk of green hydrogen produced from a plant in the Petrochemical Hub in Tanjung Kidurong, Bintulu, to South Korea.
Once operational, the plant will produce annually 630,000 tonnes of green ammonia, 600,000 tonnes of blue ammonia and 220,000 tonnes of green hydrogen, of which 7,000 tonnes will be for domestic use and the rest exported to South Korea, said Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.
South Korean companies Samsung Engineering Co Ltd, Posco and Lotte Chemical are partnering with Sarawak State Economic Development Corp (SEDC) to develop the hydrogen plant, dubbed H2biscus project. The hydrogen plant will be the first of its kind in Malaysia.
“I believe the time for hydrogen has arrived. After several decades of waiting for the potential of hydrogen as an energy carrier, hydrogen is now ready to assume a leading role in the global energy and economic transition.
“Almost 90% of global gross domestic product has put forward hydrogen support policies or initiatives,” he added at the opening of Sarawak-Korea Energy business forum here.
The event, themed “Accelerating Sarawak-Korea Strategic Energy Partnership” was co-hosted by Sarawak Economic Planning Unit and Embassy of South Korea in Malaysia.
Sarawak has awarded a US$1.07bil (RM4.69bil) contract to Samsung Engineering to provide licensing, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning service for the Sarawak methanol project currently under construction in Tanjung Kidurong.
Johari said global hydrogen market is picking up speed, with clean hydrogen production capacity more than doubled since January 2021
“By 2050, the world’s economies and energy systems will look greener.
“The projected reduction in renewable energy and electrolyser costs as well as the need for deeper decarbonisation of all economic sectors will drive the emergence of a global market for green hydrogen and its derivatives.
“This is mainly because hydrogen is an essential component of a net-zero energy system for deep decarbonisation that is required to meet the current climate targets.”
Johari said riding on this new rising potential, Sarawak is developing a public transport system called Automated Rapid Transit, which will be integrated with digital solutions to create a seamless experience using hydrogen fuel cell.
He expects this eco-friendly integrated public transportation system currently being implemented in Kuching-Samarahan Divisions to reduce carbon footprint in the Kuching city by 15% by 2030.
