Safety aspects and risks of hydrogen mapped.
Much experience has already been gained with hydrogen, especially in the chemical industry. As a result, there is also a lot of knowledge about safety and risks. But to use hydrogen on a small and large scale in society, this knowledge must be translated to other applications. Areas of attention are, for example, production via electrolysers, measures for parking garages and tunnels, and the transport of hydrogen via pipelines to refuelling stations and the built environment.
The WVIP programme makes an inventory of all safety aspects and risks along the entire chain – from the point of production, through storage and transport to the moment of use. Based on this inventory, it becomes clear which measures are necessary to apply hydrogen safely in society.
