9 December 2021

Materials webinar banner V1

Watch on-demand now

Following on from our July webinar on hydrogen safety, HSE Research and Consultancy is back, this time sharing the work HSE has been doing to understand the effect of hydrogen on engineering materials.

Demonstrating the compatibility of materials and infrastructure in hydrogen environments will be key in the safe energy transition to net zero.

In this free webinar:

  • Our materials scientists will share the fundamentals about hydrogen and its effect on materials
  • You'll hear from an HSE inspector about what we have learned from the decades of hydrogen use in the chemical and refining industries
  • You'll hear about the work we've been doing to support the use of hydrogen in novel and emerging applications
  • Our panel of specialists will discuss the existing evidence base, knowledge gaps and emerging research requirements
