Publication Spotlight: H-16 High Temperature Hydrogen Attack

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.

Committee Spotlight: HYCO Committee

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.

CGA Announces Landmark Hydrogen Initiative

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.

2022 Hydrogen Takeaways

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.

CGA Announces Formation of Hydrogen Membership

The Compressed Gas Association (CGA) has formed a new CGA Hydrogen Membership ensuring that perspectives from all segments of the hydrogen economy are represented as we continue to publish safety standards for this rapidly expanding industry.
