Green Hysland – Brief n°4

Green Hysland’s fourth newsletter is here! Discover the latest updates of the last 6 months of operation, including the inauguration of the first green hydrogen plant in Spain, established in Mallorca in the framework of the project.

The Green Hysland project is moving forward, rather faster than slower! After two years of implementation, most of the pilot activities developed in Mallorca will be ready for operation in the coming months of 2023. 

In this fourth newsletter, you will read about:
