Air Liquide, Lotte Chemical to advance hydrogen economy in Korea


A joint venture between Air Liquide Korea and global chemical company Lotte Chemical will see the two partners scaling up South Korea’s hydrogen economy through investment into large scale hydrogen filling centres in the cities of Daesan and Ulsan.
