How can the sustainability challenges of hydrogen fuel be optimized through effective leak detection?

The transition to hydrogen as a Net Zero substitute for conventional fuel is inevitable. Hydrogen features extensively in COP27 discussions and the European Commision’s REpowerEU plan, but hydrogen is still an indirect greenhouse gas and transporting the fuel is not without its sustainability risks.

In the latest issue of World Pipelines, Atmos’ Senior Simulation Consultant John Anderton discusses the sustainability challenges of transporting hydrogen fuel and how pipeline leak detection can provide support. The following areas are covered in the article:

  • Hydrogen’s financial costs versus its environmental savings
  • Sustainability challenges
  • The safest way to transport hydrogen
  • Pipeline infrastructure’s role in the energy transition
  • Hydrogen pipeline leak detection
