A project to build a plant for the production, storage and commercialization of green hydrogen was submitted by the company Antuko, represented by Olivier Potart, as a consultation of relevance to the Environmental Assessment Service. The initiative, called Genesis Project, considers an investment of US$ 70 million, and would be located in the Industrial District La Negra, in Antofagasta.
"Genesis SpA requests ratification or confirmation of whether or not the project requires submission to the SEIA," the company said.
The company explained that the initiative would be located on land owned by the Ministry of National Assets. "The useful life of the project is considered to be 25 years, which can be extended through the technological renovation of its equipment," it added.
