The Werkgroep Corrosie, which is part of the Sectie Metalen of the Bond voor Materialenkennis (BvM) presents the first programme in a series of knowledge days addressing corrosion and the materials challenges related to the energy transition.

Corrosion and the materials challenges related to the energy transition
hydrogen vs. natural gas

Date: 24 April 2023
Time: 12.00 – 17.30 (incl. lunch & drinks & bites)
Location: Koninklijke NLR – Nederlands Lucht- en Ruimtevaartcentrum, Marknesse
Information & full programme (Pdf)
For questions:

This first knowledge day will be completely dedicated to the topic of hydrogen as a replacement for natural gas. What happens to a pipe line originally built for the use of natural gas if it will pass hydrogen gas in the future. What kind of corrosion or other material degradation process may occurs when hydrogen gas is introduced? What types of failure should be taken into account in the nearby future? And what is at stake in terms of maintenance and management?

To exchange a wide range of knowledge, different aspects of this topic will be discussed. We will look at it from a scientific perspective, and also at the technological side in relevant application areas, for example in the oil, gas and steel industry.

On behalf of the Bond voor Materialenkennis and the Koninklijke NLR – Nederlands Lucht- en Ruimtevaartcentrum (NLR), the Werkgroep Corrosie in collaboration with Horizon Flevoland invites its members, colleagues, students and partners, both in industry and academia for an urgently needed exchange of knowledge and for a fruitful network meeting.
