MENA’s hydrogen potential in focus at gasworld’s MENA Industrial Gases Conference

Air Products Vice-President for Middle East, Egypt and Turkey has said hydrogen is the ‘best industrial solution’ at gasworld’s MENA Industrial Gases Conference in Abu Dhabi today (December 13).

Delivering the opening keynote speech, Hamid Sabzikari, Vice-President and General Manager, Middle East, Egypt and Turkey of Air Products, said, “What we need is to come together, to scale up – and there are tremendous opportunities in the Middle East to be realised.”
