The president said that the bankruptcy of the Cemex cement plant in Lloseta was turned into an "opportunity". Taken over by Acciona and Enagás, it became the first plant in Spain to produce renewable hydrogen. EMT is in fact the first client of the Lloseta facility and its 'Power to Green Hydrogen Mallorca' project.
Palma's mayor, José Hila, spoke of the "transformation of the city", adding that Palma is the second city in Spain after Barcelona to have adopted clean energy within its sustainable mobility policy. He referred to twelve more electric buses that will be introduced between April and June and to a 92 per cent renewal of the entire fleet since he first became mayor in 2015.
The three hydrogen buses will be in service from next week.

Jason DHydrogen can be transported By road gas tanker . Similar to other liquified gasses. Oxygen for hospitals, nitrogen, co2 for mainly food and drink products. and LNG for heating. But for such a small demand maybe drive the busses to the manufacturing storage and fill there. Either way it’s a great use of local renewable energy..
Jason DJust a wild guess, but if a bus can transport it, why not a lorry? 🧐
Jason DOne dislike, but no suggestion of how the fuel will be transported to Palma.
Oh great but how are they going to get the fuel down to Palma where it is needed?
