The presence and use of pure hydrogen in a confined space such as a house raises many questions about safety. After all, hydrogen is - just like natural gas - a dangerous substance that must be handled with the necessary care. The Netherlands Institute for Safety (IFV) has taken the initiative to conduct a literature study into the safety aspects of the use of hydrogen in confined spaces.
This report describes the results of that study, which is most relevant for advisers from safety regions who have to assess security risks. The results of the literature study are used to draw up (additional) knowledge documents for safety regions, such as an overview of the measures that specifically apply to the use of hydrogen for heating purposes in homes.
