The IPHE RCS Working Group and HySafe intend to collaborate on hydrogen safety, regulations codes and standards and awareness via common workshops, information exchange and further common actions like benchmarks and projects coordination. To this end a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed.
The first successful measure under this agreement was the common organisation of a workshop dedicated to the quite sensitive issue of “Tunnel Safety of Hydrogen Vehicles and Transport”. The workshop was held in the morning of September 18 in Buxtom, UK in advance to the LH2 workshop the PRESLHY project (www.preslhy.eu).
With almost 300 hydrogen events – accidents, incidents and near misses – collected in a database, HIAD was one of the main results of the NoE HySafe (2004-2009) and still represents one of the largest collections for hydrogen specific data.
With support of the FCH 2 JU JRC has updated the database, gave it new user interfaces and major release number (2.) and made it opened it for free access.
All interested contributors to the unique hydrogen safety event, the International Conference for Hydrogen Safety ICHS, which will be organised next year 24 to 26 September in Adelaide, Australia, are invited to submit a short abstract via www.ichs2019.com (menu item “ABSTRACT SUBMISSION”).
The deadline for submitting an abstract is 31 of December 2018. So enough time to become active 😉
The report of the last Research Priorities Workshop, organised commonly by JRC, US DOE and HySafe in fall 2016 in Petten, The Netherlands, has been finalised and published via the JRC print services. After a preliminary presentation by Jay Keller at the ICHS2017 in Hamburg, the full document provides a detailed reference for prioritised research topics in the field of hydrogen safety.
