Wide industry coalition call for a Hydrogen Strategy inclusive of all clean hydrogen pathways

On June 24th 2020, a wide industry coalition sent a letter to the European Commission calling for a Hydrogen Strategy inclusive of all clean hydrogen pathways.




The coalition of oil & gas, steel, ceramics and carbon capture & storage actors supports a strategy which comprises all clean hydrogen production pathways, including electrolysis, methane pyrolysis and natural gas reforming in combination with carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS).

It is extremely important that the EU invests in all hydrogen technologies to unlock the nascent hydrogen market, while supporting the development of EU hydrogen ecosystems. We thus urge the EU to create a strong policy framework in support of all forms of clean hydrogen, which would ensure the competitiveness of Europe’s industrial sector and secure high-quality jobs for Europeans.
