Packaging specialist joins South Australian hydrogen technology cluster
Orora is a founding member of the South Australian Hub-to-Hub (SA-H2H) Hydrogen Technology Cluster, led by EfficientSee and Mumford Commercial Consulting. National Energy Resources Australia (NERA) is investing AUD $1.85 million to establish the clusters across all states and territories that will facilitate the development of new capability in hydrogen focused technologies for Australia.
Simon Bromell, Group General Manager of Orora Beverage, said the cluster is a great opportunity for Orora to join a team that is helping move Australia towards a more sustainable energy future. “Orora is committed to becoming a leading sustainable packaging solutions provider, with sustainability core to Orora’s approach for reducing its impact on society and the environment. As a sponsor and founding member of the South Australian cluster, Orora has the opportunity to help shape the future direction of hydrogen-focussed technology development in the region. This is an exciting initiative for our business and for the community of South Australia and reinforces Orora’s ongoing commitment to ensuring the sustainability of our operations.”
Orora’s state-of-the-art glass manufacturing facility in South Australia is one of the largest glass plants in the southern hemisphere. General Manager for Orora Glass, Greg Savage, says Orora is committed to reducing the impact of its operations through sustainability initiatives. “The SA-H2H Hydrogen Technology Cluster will keep Orora connected to the best hydrogen innovations in South Australia and give Orora the opportunity to contribute to the development of a clean and energy efficient future for our region and all of Australia”
