"We strongly believe that Hydrogen has an essential role in the energy transition and at this stage of the transition, we find it important to have a technology agnostic approach as well as efficient pricing of greenhouse gas emissions. Blue Hydrogen from natural gas reforming combined with CCS is key towards net zero.
