Expoquimia and TECNALIA are jointly organising "Hydrogen Day" as part of the International Chemistry Meeting

Under the slogan, "Connecting industry, society and sustainability", the 20th edition of Expoquimia will feature a wide range of the chemical industry, an essential sector for economic development and the well-being of society.

Held in conjunction with Equiplast, this event brings together more than 530 companies and 900 brands, which will be showcasing their latest new features and innovations. The event will focus on four strategic lines: hydrogen, circular economy, digitalisation and tech transfer.

Hydrogen Day: May 30

In this edition, Expoquimia, the International Chemistry Meeting of Fira de Barcelona and TECNALIA are jointly organising "Hydrogen Day". This conference will be held on 30th May to address the challenges and opportunities involved in the use of hydrogen at industrial level.

Experts in this field will discuss the challenges that companies have to face with the increasing use of this energy source in order to make its use viable at an industrial level. Representatives from leading companies, such as Iberdrola, Repsol, Nortegas, Sener, Carburos Metálicos, Enagás, H2Site, Team, Indox, Sarralle, Jolt and Port de Barcelona, among others, have already confirmed their participation.

"Hydrogen Day" consists of a plenary session and four round tables that will analyse issues such as:

  • Hydrogen generation
  • Its distribution and storage
  • Its industrial uses
  • Training plans required in this field

Solutions that are already on the market will also be presented so that small and medium-sized enterprises, in particular, can make use of this new energy source in an affordable and economically sustainable way.
