• TOTeM 48: Hydrogen for decarbonisation

  • Publication date:

    October 2022


TOTeM 48: ‘Hydrogen for industrial decarbonisation' was a one-day event in Paris, France on 13th October 2022.

The event was held in co-operation with Comité Français – the French Flame Research Committee of IFRF. We were grateful for the support for this event from GRTGaz, Siemens, Air Liquide, Thermo Fischer Scientific and Alliance ALLICE. The event was also an official side event of the European Hydrogen Week 2022.
