CGA’s Safe Hydrogen Project launches their newest video focused on the safety considerations of small scale hydrogen production facilities.
As hydrogen gains prominence, ensuring its safe handling and utilization becomes paramount. Recognizing this need, the International Harmonization Council (IHC) of which the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) is a member, took a significant step earlier this year by creating the “Hydrogen Safety Ecosystem”.
CGA H-17, Guideline for Small Scale Hydrogen Production, addresses the safety aspects associated with siting and operating small scale hydrogen plants which are not currently addressed in existing publications for large HYCO (hydrogen, CO, and/or mixtures thereof) plants.
The latest video from the Safe Hydrogen Project covers the safe storage and transportation of hydrogen.
CGA recently issued a new publication CGA P-96, Reciprocating Cryogenic Pumps and Pump Installations for Hydrogen and Liquefied Natural Gas. The scope of CGA P-96 covers pumps in liquid hydrogen and liquefied natural gas, but this article will focus on cryogenic liquid hydrogen.
Jennifer is the point of contact for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Partnership’s reciprocal membership with CGA. Within CGA, Jennifer participates in various hydrogen-specific projects and committees, including: CGA’s Hydrogen Technology Committee, CGA’s Hazardous Materials Codes Committee, CGA’s EWP: Position on Liquid Hydrogen System Separation Distances.
High temperature hydrogen attack is a mechanism that can significantly weaken and damage a variety of steel materials, including carbon steel and various low alloy steels, that are used in the construction of hydrogen plants. H-16 provides guidance for the review of existing plant assets, risk categorization, inspection strategies, and recommendations on risk mitigation, and actions for the owners and operators of HYCO plants in response to the updated guidance on the HTHA mechanism documented in API RP 941.
CGA’s HYCO Committee Develops positions and publications to address the safe operation of plants producing hydrogen, carbon monoxide and synthesis gas (commonly known as HyCO Plants) and related materials affecting the compressed gas industry.
The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) today announced the launch of its Safe Hydrogen Project, an ambitious new safety initiative working to establish and promote industry-wide standards for the production, transportation, and storage of hydrogen and the safe operation of hydrogen systems.
Throughout the course of the year, CGA staff presented at ten hydrogen conferences, sharing our Safety is Step One message with more than 32,000 conference attendees. Many of these events connected us with audiences well outside of our membership – from fueling station operators, to utility companies, to aviation and aerospace companies.
