The inaugural New Zealand Hydrogen Symposium (NZHS-1) took place recently.  

It was a multidisciplinary forum for the latest research on hydrogen, and will involve local and international experts, iwi, universities, government research agencies, policy and industrial partners.

Kathryn speaks with one of the symposium's convenors, Professor in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Otago, Sally Brooker, who says New Zealand should take advantage of making green hydrogen to produce chemicals, provide energy, and reduce emissions, and German engineer and professor at Hamburg University of Technology, Professor Martin Kaltschmitt.
