Mapping Safe Hydrogen Standards

Hydrogen safety standards are guidelines and regulations that are designed to ensure the safe storage, handling, and transportation of hydrogen. This map will help you identify the operational standards published by CGA that best suit your needs.

Production, Operations & Maintenance

Because of hydrogen’s unique properties, liquid and gaseous hydrogen production and storage systems require careful planning, and execution. As hydrogen use expands to new areas it is vital to ensure safe and standardized use.

A sustainable hydrogen ecosystem requires that hydrogen be delivered from where it is produced to the point of end use, such as an industrial facility, power generator, or fueling station. Currently, the main methods for transporting and delivering hydrogen are by truck and through pipelines.

Hydrogen can be stored as a gas, a liquid, and in solid form. At customer locations, depending on how much hydrogen is used, gas and liquid hydrogen is stored in various tanks that require special attention to specifications like spacing, venting, and roof systems.

A hydrogen fueled future for transportation, energy storage, heating, space exploration, and more, is a rapidly approaching reality. 75 years of standards have built a strong foundation for the expansion of hydrogen use and applications of hydrogen.
