Hydrogen in plastic pipes

Renewable hydrogen will likely be introduced in limited concentrations (<20% by volume) into the gas networks. To understand the affect this will have on existing assets, several key questions need to be managed scientifically. For instance, the long-term (>50 years) effect of hydrogen on the plastic pipe assets over their lifetime remains a point of conjecture. Gnosys are uniquely placed as advanced materials experts to answer these.
