Dr Robert Judd
"The EGATEC Conference, as well as demonstrating the progress made by our industry in rising to the demands of technology and innovation in an era of constant change, is a great showcase for cooperation. Marcogaz and GERG have been strong partners for many decades, and this conference always illustrates how this close cooperation can bear fruit. Marcogaz and GERG occupy subtly but importantly different spaces in the value chain of European Associations. EGATEC allows us to show to our members and the wider community how this synergistic relationship supports the needs of an industry transitioning to a low carbon future."
