Did you know that globally more than 800 million tons of CO2eq emissions per year are due to hydrogen production? That’s roughly equivalent to e.g. the emissions from aviation or maritime transport. Those emissions can and need to be avoided by shifting towards sustainable production of renewable hydrogen. Do you want to help us get there?
