Hydrogen has great potential as a zero-emission fuel source, but it can be hard to handle. Hydrogen must be stored and dispensed at high pressures to achieve the energy density required for use in fuel cell vehicles and infrastructure, but as a small-molecule gas, it can migrate through tiny crevices and diffuse into materials designed to contain it. Also, hydrogen undergoes rapid thermal and pressure changes as it is transferred, further complicating its use as a fuel source.
Specifying high-performing fluid system solutions (fittings, valves, tubes, hoses) designed for hydrogen applications is the best way to achieve long-term, leak-tight operation of fueling and on-vehicle hydrogen systems. In this presentation, we will cover:
Renewables are critical to the success of the global energy transition as they contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable energy mix between fossil and non-fossil energy sources. Besides wind, solar, hydro, and biofuels, green hydrogen presents a promising clean source of energy to reduce our global carbon footprint. However, the production process still faces challenges in commercialization and scale up. The high cost of electrolyzers and stringent purity standards make green hydrogen the most expensive way to make hydrogen. Liquid, gaseous, and solid contaminants must all be removed from the hydrogen produced to meet the purity standards required.
In this one-hour webinar, Pall hydrogen and separation and filtration experts will discuss the green hydrogen production process and best practices you can implement to ensure complete contaminant removal in your final product while assisting in making green hydrogen production more economical and sustainable.

Hydrogen must be stored at high pressures to achieve the energy density required for use in fuel cell vehicles and infrastructure. This presentation will demonstrate the performance attributes required of fittings used in these systems.
As a small-molecule gas, hydrogen can migrate through tiny crevices and diffuse into the materials designed to contain them. Also, high storage and dispensing pressures, as well as rapid thermal and pressure changes, are challenges for the processing of hydrogen as a fuel source. Specification of high-performing fluid system fittings designed for these challenging applications will help ensure the long-term, leak-tight operation of the system.
This webcast will examine the development of hydrogen projects, technology applications and markets in Europe and Asia-Pacific, the two regions driving global low-carbon hydrogen production and demand. In the transportation fuel segment alone, nearly 600 hydrogen refueling stations were deployed worldwide as of the end of 2020, with half of these located in Asia-Pacific and one-third located in Europe. Low-carbon hydrogen production and use will be discussed for a range of applications, including fuel and chemical processing, transportation fuel, energy storage and power generation, natural gas blending and others.
With carbon dioxide costs at $25–35/t, blue hydrogen is already competitive against grey and, according to the International Energy Agency, green hydrogen will remain more expensive beyond 2030. For greenfield projects, oxygen-based hydrogen production systems offer advantages over steam methane reforming. In a recent example, the Shell Blue Hydrogen Process cut the levelized cost of hydrogen by 22% compared with autothermal reforming through reducing capital expenditure by 17% and operating expenditure by 34%.
