Work package 2

 

Hydrogen quality standards

  • IGEM, the Institution of Gas Engineers & Managers, is reviewing the relevant standards for hydrogen

  • Purity and colourant are being considered by DNV GL in a separate stream of work

IGEM will be reviewing all the relevant existing standards and bringing together a group of technical specialists to identify knowledge gaps, both in the UK and internationally. Three IGEM working groups will look at a range of areas including;

  • DSEAR (dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres regulations)

  • materials

  • leakage rates and ventilation

  • appliance location

  • fluing, installation and air supply

  • installation

The work will be peer reviewed by industry experts such as, the Health & Safety Laboratory, DNV GL, and IGEM’s own Technical Coordinating Committee and Gas Utilisation Committee.

Separately DNV GL work package is also conducting studies into the purity and colourant of hydrogen gas to inform the development of a range of hydrogen appliances and testing / certification capability as an integral part of the Hy4Heat programme, to de-risk the use of hydrogen for heat in UK homes and businesses. The work includes research, development and testing studies to provide an assessment of the options available for the purity and flame colourant for hydrogen.
