1 Hydrogen Embrittlement-Related Issues and Needs in the Hydrogen Value Chain
Download citation file:
Hydrogen and fuel cell technologies are part of a portfolio of options to solve major energy security and climate change challenges that face countries today in reducing oil dependence and greenhouse gas emissions. Hydrogen has the potential to occupy a unique position because it brings flexibility to the energy system and it does not produce CO2 emissions at the point of use once generated. However, the intensive usage of hydrogen as an energy carrier and its well known embrittling effects on metallic materials create some challenges in terms of materials selection, the use of appropriate materials testing and standards,...
