Hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier that will serve the transition to a zero-carbon economy in many industries. It is already widely used in the chemical and refining industries. The first implementations can also be found in the metallurgical, energy, glass and cement industries.
The most mature and widespread applications of hydrogen can be found in the field of transportation - from forklifts, cars, buses and trains, ships to airplanes and space rockets. The development of this technology will be supported by EU funds, which has focused on hydrogen in its energy transition strategy.
About 90 percent of hydrogen is produced and used in the fertilizer and refining industries. Hydrogen is also produced as a by-product in the chemical industry. The future lies in producing hydrogen from renewable sources - primarily by electrolysis, but also by biomass gasification
Only 15 percent of global hydrogen production is used off-site and transported as compressed gas or cryogenic liquid. This implies investment in infrastructure - from storage, pipeline transmission to liquefaction or transport as compressed gas.
Hydrogen valleys are regional ecosystems. The development will be based on the local production of hydrogen, which is transported over short distances. The basis is local demand based on the production of energy from renewable sources. This changing perspective will include education, research and development, implementation and industrial applications.

“H2 Krosno” family hydrogen picnic in Naftowka school
On 30 July 2022, the family science picnic “H2 Krosno” took place in the Ignacy-Lukasiewicz oil and gas school complex in Krosno. “Naftowka” because the school is commonly called, as the only one in Poland educating students in oil and gas professions, has organized a hydrogen science picnic for the second time.
The idea behind the organized events is to popularize knowledge related to hydrogen as a fuel of the future and to build awareness about the market and opportunities for hydrogen use.
During the picnic, one could, among others visit the bus of the laboratory of the Ignacy Lukasiewicz Foundation’s laboratory PGNiG “Being Like Ignacy”, participate of chemical test demonstrations presented by students of “Naftowka” school and students of the Rzeszow University of Technology and AGH University of Science and Technology, as well as attended lectures. Both hydrogen-related and geological exhibition were prepared. The youngest participants of the picnic were focused on games, plays, art contests and sports competitions. The participants experienced a lot of excitement and additional impressions in the flight simulator and parachute simulator as well as in workshops and demonstrations with VR (virtual reality) technology.
The presented prototype of a hydrogen electrolyser developed by ML System and the prototype of a hydrogen-fuelled gas cooker constructed by the Oil and Gas Institute were of great interest to visitors.
The picnic in “Nafowka” was honored by the presence of prominent guests, including politicians, representatives both of self-government and science units, as well as research and education centers.
The involvement of teachers, lecturers, students, pupils, and other supporting persons was enormous, and the entire picnic was supervised by the organizer - the Director of Naftowka, Ms. Joanna Kubit.
Thanks to the Director Ms. J.Kubit, who invited sponsors and patrons, the picnic was organized at a high level of content and education. The main partners of the picnic were the following companies: Agency of Industry Development S. A. and PGNIG Technology S. A , with partners including the Rzeszow University of Technology, Sub-Carpathian Hydrogen Valley, AGH University of Science and Technology, the Integrated Qualification System, the Ignacy Lukasiewicz Museum of Oil and Gas Industry in Bobrka.
