Safe use of hydrogen for lab and pilot scale

The purpose of this document is to supply necessary information for safe handlingof hydrogen for lab and pilot scale applications of HARARE project. Whenhydrogen is oxidized with oxygen, the only by-product is water vapor, making itan ideal energy carrier and oxidizing agent for a green environmentally friendlyand sustainable economy. Hydrogen is however commonly viewed as […]
