KOGAS to accelerate Gwangju Metropolitan City’s hydrogen future

South Korean public natural gas company Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Gwangju Metropolitan City to build a hydrogen production base.

The agreement will see the construction of a medium-size hydrogen production based which will be capable of producing more than four tonnes of hydrogen per day, by utilising the natural gas supply chain in areas where hydrogen demand is expected to increase.
