HyBlend to assess hydrogen compatibility with pipeline materials in the US

January 7, 2022

Hydrogen could be the future when it comes to heating our homes, but in order to achieve large scale deployment of the energy carrier in domestic settings, technical barriers to blending hydrogen in natural gas pipelines need to be addressed.

This is something that is now being focused on in North America with the launch of a two-year long HyBlend project, which will assess hydrogen compatibility with pipeline materials and operations and deliver information on long-term impacts.

The US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) National Renewable Energy Laboratory on Thursday (Jan 6) confirmed it is leading the project, along with the participation from Sandia National Laboratories, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the National Energy Technology Laboratory.
