The FCH JU is organising a session “Hydrogen and fuel cells greening European industry” at the EUSEW 2018. The session will take place on 7 June 2018 at 11:00 in the Charlemagne Building of the European Commission in Brussels. The session focuses on the potential of green hydrogen to decarbonise large industries, such as steel making, refineries, ammonia/ fertilizer plants and food industry. Large industries are traditionally dependent on imported energy and raw materials and emit up to 40% of total CO2 emissions worldwide.
