Green technology at Expo 2020 Dubai
The topic of green energy for the future and innovative solutions was discussed, i.a., at the Polish-Arab Economic Forum (6 December 2021) - one of the most important events at Expo 2020 Dubai, during which domestic achievements are presented. One of the thematic panels was devoted to that issue. It was pointed out that the world should rely on renewable energy sources. The purpose of the panel was to find answers to the most important questions related to the implementation of the ambitious plans to achieve global green transformation. A large part of the discussion was devoted to hydrogen and its role in the implementation of the so-called Green Deal. Grzegorz Jóźwiak, the Director of the Alternative Fuels Implementation Office of PKN ORLEN, reminded that the Polish fuel and energy company had declared that it would achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The aim is to implement the "Hydrogen Eagle" infrastructure project for the hydrogen economy in Poland and Central Europe. PKN ORLEN will process municipal waste into hydrogen which will be used as fuel for transport. Ultimately, 120 hydrogen refuelling stations are to be built, which will translate into a reduction of the carbon footprint by one million tonnes per year.
Polish environmental technologies supported by state institutions
Polish entrepreneurs who decide to offer products based on green technologies can count on regular financial and promotional support from many state institutions. The flagship project dedicated to originators of innovative services is called "GreenEvo - Green Technology Accelerator". The programme was prepared by the Ministry of Climate and Environment and it helps to promote the best Polish environmental technologies in the country and on foreign markets. Active support is provided to the winners of the 7th and 8th editions - a total of 31 companies that offer 36 solutions verified by specialists. As part of the support, meetings with partners from different countries are organised for the entrepreneurs. In addition to greater opportunities in establishing international contacts, Polish small and medium-sized companies also gain knowledge on foreign markets, marketing know-how and tools to enable their dynamic development. The GreenEvo programme was launched in 2009, as a result of the arrangements made during the 14th United Nations Congress. The programme supports solutions of various companies in the field of water and sewage management, air protection or technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
