Let's run the future on hydrogen!
Preserving the environment depends on reducing emissions and fossil fuel consumption. Scientific knowledge and technological progress allow our generation to choose alternative solutions for a sustainable future – new green technologies based on hydrogen. Indeed, hydrogen is the best alternative to fossil fuels that could be used en masse to generate clean energy to heat buildings, power vehicles and decarbonize industrial processes. Hydrogen is the most abundant chemical element in space and on Earth, where it is mostly bound to other chemical elements in water and organic compounds. Therefore, it can be produced from almost any energy source. Green hydrogen, produced from water by an electrolysis process, is the cleanest. When we use it in a fuel cell, we generate electricity that can be used to power vehicles. Combustion produces only water vapour, which does not pollute the environment. >>>
Sounds almost too simple, doesn’t it?
In fact, green hydrogen technologies are hardly used in everyday life at the moment because of the expensive processes involved. But many laboratories, educational institutions and numerous companies are developing solutions for the wider use of these important future technologies.
National Institute of Chemistry and the partners of the H₂GreenTECH project want to draw the public’s attention to the development of breakthrough hydrogen technologies in the area of Slovenia and Austria. We have launched a photo competition on the theme Let’s run the future on hydrogen!
Everyone interested in hydrogen and green hydrogen technologies is invited to capture snapshots
in photos! What about motives? Only the sky is the limit… but in the case of hydrogen, it may not
be 😊 Share with us impressive photos of your research or educational activities, the use of hydrogen in work/production processes, or its use/appearance in daily life.
The four best photos (two from Austria and two from Slovenia) will be taken on Traveling Exhibition Hydrogen Center in the form of a laboratory to raise public awareness of the importance of green hydrogen technologies. It will be set up in seven locations in Slovenia and Austria, with an accompanying permanent virtual exhibition. Winners will receive the H₂GreenTECH Promotional Package and #Spend the Day experience in the lab at National Institute of Chemistry, Slovenia or TU Graz, Austria.
The winning photos will complement the promotional activities of the H₂GreenTECH project partners. Others will be included in the website Hydrogen Center in consultation with the authors to promote their activities in the field of hydrogen technologies.
