Mar 7, 2023

In the coming years, hydrogen will be widely distributed in the German pipeline network as a mixture with natural gas, seeking to enable its application in domestic and industrial environments. The content of hydrogen in this mixture needs to be monitored in different stages of the distribution process, given that it has a lower calorific value (in MJ/m³), as well as a higher diffusivity than natural gas. This monitoring process should particularly ensure that the prescribed safety limits for hydrogen concentration are preserved.
