Through its local unit, the German company is planning to manufacture, among several other technologies, electrolysis-based green hydrogen generators and ethanol and biomethane reformers, the state government said.

For this year, Neuman&Esser will invest BRL 20 million in order to expand its factory in Minas Gerais. According to Neuman&Esser's local general director, Marcelo Veneroso, the firm expects to enter into partnerships with companies looking into other suitable technologies.
