ANT is working with both government and non-government stakeholders towards overcoming the common misconceptions about hydrogen within the community as a whole.
Contrary to popular belief, hydrogen is seven (7) times safer than propane (LPG). This is due to hydrogen being lighter than air, as well as being the smallest gas molecule in the world. Some basic facts about hydrogen:
Fact One If there is a hydrogen leak in a system it dissipates quickly, preventing any build-up of hydrogen occurring. At no stage is there sufficient hydrogen in the air to cause a hazardous situation.
Fact Two An example of deliberately lighting a ruptured hydrogen fuel tank and a petrol tank in two separate cars shows the inherent safety of hydrogen as compared to traditional gasoline based fuels (refer to videos below).
