DOE launches app on hydrogen use
13 September 2013
The US Department of Energy (DOE) the Energy Department launched a new app to provide more easily best practices and procedures for safely handling and using hydrogen to power fuel cells. “Hydrogen Tools” is available for the iPhone and iPad at no cost from the Apple App Store.
Developed by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory with support from the DOE, the app, Hydrogen Tools, incorporates a variety of resources and web-based content focusing on the safe use and handling of hydrogen for those involved in designing, approving, or using hydrogen fuel cell systems and facilities.
Primarily geared towards hydrogen installation developers and permitting officials, the app includes information on the safe ventilation of hydrogen, safe distances and pressures for storing hydrogen, and best practices and lessons learned on handling hydrogen.
The Energy Department has supported hydrogen and fuel cell R&D and resource development for more than thirty years, with many projects resulting in the materials that are now available through the Hydrogen Tools app, in addition to being available online.
