Visit by minister Paola De Micheli

After completing her visit of the BBT (Brenner Base Tunnel) construction site, minister Paola De Micheli travelled to Bolzano South where she visited the Centre for Hydrogen and E-Mobility: Here she enquired about the LIFEalps project and about South Tyrol's hydrogen and fuel cell experience and these technologies' potential to contribute to a sustainable mobility.

Thanks to the progress in technology it is possible to create more sustainable, even zero emission, forms of heavy traffic. This aspect has been the main focus of the minister of Transport and Infrastructure's visit: South Tyrol's know-how will play an important role not only nationwide and will pave the way towards a more sustainable future.
