Project funded by the Department of Economic Development, Sustainability and Environment of the Basque Government (HAZITEK 2022 Programme) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF 2021-2027).

The purpose of the AVOGADRO project is to develop new and integral high-pressure green hydrogen refuelling stations for heavy goods transport vehicles.

PROJECT

Furthermore, the project is also focused on helping the Basque Country gain international recognition as a technological benchmark for the HRS of the future, a key element of the emerging hydrogen economy.
