The Minister for Business and Labour, Roger Torrent i Ramió, claimed that “inter-territorial collaboration is key to being competitive in the transformation of the production model in which green hydrogen will be fundamental”, and for this reason, “it is very important that we join efforts as we are doing with the Ebro Hydrogen Corridor”.

During his speech, the Minister for Business and Labour explained that the incorporation of the uses of green hydrogen means “new productive solutions and new market possibilities for the business sector, especially for the industrial sector, which leads to the creation of quality jobs”.

The Minister stated that “the Government of the Catalonia is fully committed to the development of the green hydrogen ecosystem, supporting and facilitating projects”.
