Ensuring the safety of employees, contractors and the public is IEPS’s highest priority!
H2 generation facilities routinely generate public concerns regarding safety and working safely with H2 requires a commitment to following safe practices and attention to details. H2 like all other fuels, has some degree of danger associated with its production, storage and transportation and must be managed with care.
Although both non-toxic and non-corrosive, H2 can induce metal fatigue in some forms of steel pipe and the associated welded joints. And although H2 is much lighter than air and dissipates very rapidly when released, it also ignites more easily than either propane or natural gas.
