Hydrogen webinar set for Feb. 25

By Jack Burke21 January 2021

Attendees of the hour-long session can pose questions to the experts

As more industries and market segments seek ways to cut carbon emissions, hydrogen, it seems, is having a moment.

Hydrogen, or more specifically hydrogen produced by renewable energy, is “currently enjoying unprecedented political and business momentum,” according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). Barely a week goes by without a company touting a “breakthrough” in hydrogen technology.

But hydrogen has challenges — people remember the Hindenburg disaster for a reason. Some of hydrogen’s properties require additional engineering controls to ensure safety. The gas has a wide range of flammable concentrations in the air and lower ignition energy than gasoline or natural gas. Consequently, adequate ventilation and leak detection are important elements in the design of safe hydrogen systems. Because hydrogen burns with a nearly invisible flame, special flame detectors are also required.

To take a look at some of the opportunities—and challenges—of wide-scale adoption of green hydrogen, Diesel & Gas Turbine Worldwide will host a webinar starting at 9 a.m. CST (15:00 BST/16:00 CET) Feb. 25 featuring:

• Jeff Goldmeer, director of Gas Turbine Combustion & Fuels Solutions, GE Power

• Dr. Jacqueline O’Connor, director of the Center for Gas Turbine Research at Penn State University

• Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus Hoff, Managing Director Compressor Solutions, NEUMAN & ESSER GROUP

Attendees of the hour-long session will be able to pose questions to the experts as well. Click here to sign up for the free webinar.
