Stepping into the World of Hydrogen:
BJA VIP Visit to Virya Energy & Seminar on Hydrogen

 

While hydrogen has been promoted for years as a way to decarbonize emissions from road transport, hydrogen is now also the "rising star" energy carrier.

Did you know that hydrogen could be used to store energy from intermittent solar and wind energies?

Did you know that utilization of hydrogen is also key to decarbonizing industrial processes?

In other words, hydrogen is unmissable in our global pursuit of a low-emission, environment-benign, cleaner, and more sustainable energy system.

Come and join us to explore together the world of hydrogen in a seminar with esteemed speakers and on-site at the plant of Virya Energy-Colruyt, witnessing first-hand.
