SAE International hosted the Hydrogen Contamination Detector Workshop on June 12, 2014, in Troy, Michigan. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Fuel Cell Technologies Office, the workshop was held to gather individual input from key stakeholders about suitable technologies and research and development (R&D) gaps and needs for hydrogen contamination detectors at hydrogen refueling stations. This input helped identify technical and performance requirements for hydrogen contamination detectors, current state-of-the-art detection technologies for the near term, and the R&D advancements needed for low-cost, accurate, and robust detectors for the long term. The workshop drew on experts from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), industrial gas companies, oil and gas companies, fuel cell manufacturers, national labs, regulatory bodies, energy research institutions, and developers of detection technologies to provide individual input and discussion.
