Hydrogen safety research wins funding


A new study that aims to promote hydrogen safety has won £30k ($37k) pump priming funding, advancing the potential of the gas as a next-generation clean energy source.

Undertaken at the National Subsea Centre (NSC), the research focuses on the development of a new hydrogen gas leak detection sensor to ensure safety around hydrogen, especially during transport and storage. 

Conducted in partnership between Robert Gordon University (RGU) and the Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC), the research is funded by the Scottish Government through The Royal Society of Edinburgh’s (RSE’s) Scotland-Germany Hydrogen Research Scheme. 

Project lead, Professor James Njuguna, explained why it’s important for hydrogen to be easily detectable.
