In January, Eui-sun Chung, the executive vice chairman of Hyundai Motor Company, was named co-chair of the Hydrogen Council. He now heads the organization together with Benoît Potier, Air Liquide’s chief executive and chairman of the council since its founding in 2017. Both stressed the import of creating a zero-carbon hydrogen society.
Potier said both were heartened by the level of commitment shown by the council’s member companies, which were at the forefront of hydrogen technology development. Additionally, Chung revealed that his company was expecting steadily growing demand for fuel cells, which meant that Hyundai would increase fuel cell production capacity accordingly.
