Hazer Group Ltd was incorporated in 2010 as a specialist commercialisation company for the development of the Hazer Process – a novel hydrogen and graphite production process developed by researchers at the University of Western Australia (UWA).
The research project that now underpins the Hazer Process was initially developed at the University of WA over several years, with funding supplied from the Australian Research Council and industry partners including Wesfarmers Limited. After the process’ demonstrated initial success, Hazer Group (initially called Hazer Pty Ltd) was established in 2010 to commercialise the technology.
On its formation, Hazer Pty Ltd secured seed capital to undertake further commercial development of the technology. The Company secured further capital in 2014, for additional working capital and corporate development costs. In March 2015, the company became a public company and changed its name to Hazer Group Limited.
