Luis Gállego, director of the Ercros factory in Sabiñánigo, presented the prize to the winner at the ceremony held at the headquarters of the Government of Aragón, within the framework of the 20th anniversary of the constitution of the Aragón Hydrogen Foundation. Arturo Aliaga, acting Minister of Industry and president of the aforementioned foundation, presided the act. The award is part of the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation Awards organized every year by the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies in Aragon, of which Ercros is a member.
