Vietnam intends to produce between 100,000 and 500,000 tonnes of hydrogen a year by 2030, Reuters reported on Friday. The country, which adopted a new hydrogen development strategy earlier in February, will then seek to raise its output to between 10 and 20 million tonnes by 2050, some of which will be green hydrogen, according to government documents seen by the news agency.

Reuters quoted the documents as saying that the production and use of hydrogen will help “meet the country’s national targets for climate change and green growth, and to meet its net-zero target by 2050.” According to Reuters, the documents also said that hydrogen will partly replace natural gas and coal at power plants by the end of the current decade, and that it will also be used for transport and in the production of fertilizer, steel, and cement.
