LIFE+ZeroHyTechPark Project: working towards zero-emission technology parks

Over the past four years, the Aragón Hydrogen Foundation has been carrying out the LIFE+ZeroHytechPark project, subsidised as part of the official call for the European Commission’s LIFE+ project and which has developed applications based on hydrogen technologies that can exponentially reduce CO2 emissions, increase the autonomy of the prototypes developed and reduce their charging time.

Today’s fossil fuel-based energy model is unsustainable. There is a high level of dependence on a type of fuel that presents clear disadvantages: their reserves are found in exclusive regions, are highly contaminant and with increasing costs, all of which translates into a real need to change the energy system.

 

Within this framework, the LIFE+ZeroHyTechPark project belongs to the European LIFE+ programme on the environment which, over the course of four years has studied how to achieve more sustainable technology parks, a task for which it has a budget of €1.3m, 50% of which is funded by the European Union. The project, coordinated by the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies in Aragón (the FHA), has enjoyed the support of the following partners: the Technology Park of Andalusia, the Science and Technology Park of Vizcaya and the Walqa Technology Park (PTW).
