In addition to electric cars that are charged with regeneratively generated electricity, research is also being carried out here in the area of green hydrogen propulsion. We are exploring many different avenues and looking for ways to produce fuels without fossil components that are at the same time sustainable and also affordable and socially acceptable. A key technology in this is catalysis. In this podcast episode, we talk about our work with it.
