Draft of NFPA 2011 Hydrogen Technologies Code Now Available For Public Comment

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has published a proposed draft of its 2011 Hydrogen Technologies Code for public comment through 5 March 2010.

The purpose of the code is to provide fundamental safeguards for the generation, installation, storage, piping, use, and handling of hydrogen in either compressed gas (H2) or cryogenic liquid (LH2) form, and will apply to the production, storage, transfer, and use of hydrogen in all occupancies, including stationary, portable, and vehicular infrastructure applications.

The NFPA establishes fire protection standards in the United States, which are often adopted or adapted by other countries, on electrical, building, and equipment safety, including standards for vehicles propelled by gaseous fuels.
