Efficient hydrogen sensing with atomically engineered materials

Project description

Hydrogen sensing technology for leak detection

The path to a fully decarbonised economy will require tackling safety issues effectively. Hydrogen’s role as a sustainable energy transmitter in the future economy will prove decisive. However, the combustion process raises safety concerns as air-hydrogen mixtures are highly flammable and the power required to trigger this combustion is minimal. Effective and reliable detection and leakage-monitoring techniques based on sensing technology are key. The EU-funded H2OXIDES project will create an advanced material platform for resilient hydrogen sensors that can control leakage in the distribution networks. The project will employ the latest outcomes in basic research on oxide electronics to develop ultra-sensitive and robust hydrogen sensors.
