use of hydrogen calls for respect
Hydrogen siting issues
Is hydrogen dangerous? According to many sources,
hydrogen is no more dangerous than other materials we use
regularly — such as gasoline, propane, electricity
and natural gas. But like these other substances, hydrogen's explosive
properties must be understood and respected for safe use. Because hydrogen rises
and dissipates quickly, many actually consider it to be less dangerous in a spill
situation than other fuels.
A great deal of hydrogen safety information may be found
at the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association website: http://www.fchea.org/ and at the U.S. DOE Hydrogen Program website, http://www.hydrogen.energy.gov/code_official_training.html.
Several companies supply hydrogen throughout the U.S.
