      He mentioned green hydrogen, green ammonia, green steel and said ArcelorMittal is part of the endeavour and this would be a game changing project.

      Reddy said Andhra Pradesh is offering an exclusive opportunity to those who are interested in green power and decarbonising the economies and added that the state has the capacity of more than 33,000 MW available.

      The Chief Minister assured that the state government is ready to extend all support to the project.
