The workshop was dedicated to the hydrogen community, industries and R&D communities at the cutting-edge of the technologies for hydrogen production, distribution, storage, gas analyzers and fuel cells manufacturers and OEM in the automotive sector and standardization developing organizations who are keen to promote the hydrogen energy sector.
The main objective of the workshop was to highlight the results of the European metrology project Hydrogen aiming at:
- addressing standardization needs on hydrogen purity, analytical methods
- developing and validating traceable methods for measuring the hydrogen mass absorbed in metal hydrid storage tanks

- The role of Voluntary Standardization – ME Crozet, AFNOR
- Training session: Hydrogen purity measurements according to ISO 14687-2 and risk assessment for fuel cells – T Bacquart, NPL & F Auprêtre, AREVAH2Gen
- Training session: Analytical methods review for hydrogen quality control according to ISO standards – O Büker, RISE & M Carré, Air Liquide
- Training session: Mass measurements of H2 absorbed in metal hydrides and revised ISO16111 – D Perreux, MAHYTEC
- Paris Innovation Campus – H Chevrel, VP R&D Europe Air Liquide
- Towards sustainability: The current status and future outlook of fuel cell vehicles in Toyota – V Mattelaer, Toyota
- Standards to promote hydrogen mobility – H Barthélémy, CEN TC 268 Chair
- Sampling and analysis of hydrogen from refuelling stations in Europe – TA Aarhaug, SINTEF
- How to ensure H2 quality without increasing H2 analysis cost? – M Carré, Air Liquide
- Impact of key impurities on fuel cell degradation – I Profatilova, CEA
- Risk assessment of impurities in hydrogen for fuel cells – M Carré, Air Liquide & F Auprêtre, AREVAH2Gen
