Hydrogen Compatible Materials Workshop
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Sandia National Laboratories hosted the Hydrogen Compatible Materials Workshop on November 3, 2010, in Livermore, California. The workshop focused on hydrogen compatible materials and components, with two goals: 1) to identify gaps in hydrogen compatible materials R&D, and 2) to develop international R&D pathways that address the identified R&D gaps.
During the morning workshop session, speakers from DOE, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), standards development organizations, industrial gas companies, research labs, and universities presented contemporary perspectives on hydrogen compatible materials and components. In the afternoon, attendees participated in an interactive working meeting that focused on gap identification and research road-mapping.
