Members of the Compressed Gas Association have long been global leaders in the production, storage, distribution, and application of hydrogen and other industrial gases.

In addition to our existing library of hydrogen standards, we are bringing our unique expertise in hydrogen to the development of new informational videos about hydrogen safety.

The Need for Hydrogen Vent Systems

Hydrogen has a wide flammability range and a very low ignition energy. For these reasons, any release of hydrogen to the atmosphere may ignite.  Discharges of gaseous hydrogen must be released to the atmosphere through an engineered vent system at a sufficient height so that the radiant heat will not harm people or property.
