NIST calculates high cost of hydrogen pipelines, shows how to reduce it
Washington DC (SPX) Jul 27, 2015
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has put firm numbers on the high costs of installing pipelines to transport hydrogen fuel--and also found a way to reduce those costs. Pipelines to carry hydrogen cost more than other gas pipelines because of the measures required to combat the damage hydrogen does to steel's mechanical properties over time. NIST researchers calculated that hydrogen-specific steel pipelines can cost as much as 68 percent more than natural gas pipelines, dep ... read more
