Mr. Khalid Al-Khatib pointed to the use and development of hydrogen in transportation, electricity generation and environmentally friendly chemical industries, and the increasing global demand for hydrogen as an alternative energy source, in accordance with the climate treaty 2018 in France.

The director of business development at the company Engineer Bahaa Sharif said that hydrogen has a number of important characteristics that qualify him to be the "fuel of the future". It is a clean and environmentally safe fuel that does not release harmful gases when burned and has high energy. Therefore, it is one of the distinctive sources of energy as a fuel or energy carrier in fuel cells. It can be used either directly or when mixed with natural gas at specific rates.

Hydrogen is one of the lightest and most abundant chemical elements in the universe, a non-odor, color-like, non-toxic and flammable gas, and does not exist alone in nature, usually united with a number of elements to form different chemical compounds, whether in the gaseous state such as natural gas, or liquid as water and oil, or as solid as different carbon compounds.

Hydrogen can be used to produce energy in several ways, including the use of internal combustion engines for vehicles, or in fuel cells to produce electricity. Hydrogen is also used as fuel in spacecraft and rocket propulsion.

At the end of this scientific meeting, Dr. Mahmoud Abu Shaira' presented a Souvenir to the general manager of the company, Mr. Nasser Al-Khatib. This was followed by a tour of the university facilities, in which Al Khatib praised the tremendous development and excellence of Zarqa University, which has become on of the best among the universities in Jordan.
