Hydrogen boom could lead to new platinum bull market

Or, maybe not. 

Whereas platinum is losing its most important customer in diesel, it’s about to gain an equally impressive one: Green hydrogen.

Trevor Raymond, head of research at the World Platinum Investment Council (WPIC), has told Kitco that the hydrogen boom is about to provide a new lifeline for platinum.
