High pressure onboard hydrogen storage: Public perception of safety

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In this presentation author speaks as a member of public having access to published information of safety of onboard high pressure hydrogen storage. Test results of catastrophic failure of tanks of type 3 and 4 are shown, including fireballs, long flames, data on blast waves and projectiles. Some new statistical data are presented demonstrating that a catastrophic failure of a tank cannot be ruled out from the probabilistic risk assessment as was thought previously. It is suggested that most of safety concerns can be resolved if fire resistance rating of storage tank without activation of TPRD would be reaching 1-2 hours. This would allow TPRD diameters below 1 mm and thus shorter flames and realistic separation distances, self-evacuation and rescue operations.
