Hydrexia spun out of the University of Queensland, Australia in 2004 with a novel metal-hydride hydrogen storage technology. The company secured scale-up venture capital investment support from Southern Cross Venture Partners, Uniseed and GBS Ventures; funding from Australian Renewable Energy Agency; and strategic capital from Air Liquide via their investment vehicle ALIAD. In 2021, Hydrexia merged with Hyfun (China) to develop our Hydrogen Refueling Station offering for international markets, including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Korea, UK & Europe, and North America. As a result of this merger, Hydrexia gained access to advanced and reliable technology to build compact, high performance HRS facilities and Metal Hydride hydrogen storage systems to enable our clients to deliver their zero-emissions strategies.
