Are serious accidents inevitable in heavy industry? Why, despite our best efforts, do fatalities continue to occur? Can technology play a role in improving safety performance? Are there any emerging technologies that could result in a breakthrough improvement in health and safety performance in industries such as mining, oil & gas, chemical, and others?
In this article, we share some thoughts about a potential future hydrogen economy, discuss the different production routes for hydrogen, consider logistic implications of hydrogen storage and distribution, and describe some of the applications of hydrogen, and particularly transport applications.
