Arnaud Leroy, President of ADEME, visiting SAFRA

The President of ADEME, Mr Arnaud Leroy, as well as the Regional Director of ADEME Occitanie, Mr Michel Peyron, will visit SAFRA on Thursday 28 March 2019 from 3.30 pm to 5 pm. This visit will be an opportunity for the representatives of ADEME to measure the impacts of the various projects on which ADEME accompanies the company around the Businova 1 program. It is also an opportunity to discover the production site located in the ZAC of Fonlabour, To date, nearly 220 employees are employed, including 80 jobs directly in the Businova program.

In 2015, SAFRA launched the «Businova Evolution» project, supported technically and financially by ADEME, as part of a Future Investment Project, aimed at developing the various Businova bricks and modules. This project ended on March 20, and its implementation was instrumental in the success of the Businova program.
ADEME continues to follow the development program still today and until the end of 2019 on the hydrogen version of Businova, through IPME (Initiatives Petites et Moyennes Entreprises) funding. 

Finally, SAFRA is following with great interest the news of the ADEME call for projects «hydrogen mobility ecosystems» published as part of the Hydrogen Deployment Plan for the Energy Transition (announced on 1 June 2018). The results of this call for projects will contribute to the future commercial success of Businova hydrogen, as many prospects have submitted applications.
These public policies are fully in line with SAFRA’s development challenges and are decisive in the various changes in mobility and the energy transition. The local elected representatives will be present on this visit, in order to also meet Mr Leroy.
