Hydrogen Storage Webinar Recording Released

Fri, 28 April, 2023

TWI hosted a webinar dedicated to ‘Risk and Safety Assessment of Scaled-Up Hydrogen Storage System’ on 8 March, 2023, and a recording of the event is now available to watch online now.

The popular event, which drew 300 registrations from 45 different countries, saw TWI’s Vipin Pillai present on the safety issues and safety factors concerning hydrogen storage.

As more industries look to hydrogen as an energy solution, it is important to develop cost-effective and efficient methods for its storage.

Available methods include compression at high pressures and liquefaction through cooling down to -253°C and storage with a chemical compound. Each of these storage methods have their own advantages and disadvantages.

The webinar shared information covering the risk and safety assessment of scaled up hydrogen storage systems, including insights on the use of the API 580/581 approach for risk and safety assessments targeted towards the operational stage.

The online event also included inputs from the Horizon Europe project MAST3RBOOST (Maturing the Production Standards of Ultra porous Structures for High Density Hydrogen Storage Bank Operating on Swinging Temperatures and Low Compression), which aims to provide a solid benchmark of cold-adsorbed H2 storage (CAH2) at low compression (100 bar or below) through the maturation of a new generation of ultra-porous materials for mobility applications, i.e., H2-powered vehicles, including road and railway, air-borne and waterborne transportation.

Those that missed this event or would like to see it again, can see the webinar recording in full, below:

The MAST3RBOOST project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe's research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101058574. TWI's work in this project is funded by Innovate UK under grant no 10040807.
