The usage of hydrogen generated from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, has stirred extraordinary interest in recent years. Potential applications include the substitution of natural gas in a wide variety of industrial processes, production of fertilizers, and CO2-neutral mobility. Large hydrogen projects are under implementation across Brazil and in many other countries.
