All Good Things Go by Three: Kick-off of the HyInnoNets Project, Part of the Zukunftscluster Wasserstoff
Recently, the consortium of the HyInnoNets project has met at the ITA Institut für Textiltechnik of the RWTH Aachen University. The project partners will be working on solutions for hydrogen transport through pipelines, combining the Extreme High-Speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA) coating technology with fiber-reinforced plastics tubing. Using EHLA, hydrogen permeation barrier coatings will be developed to retrofit and protect the internal surfaces of metal pipelines from hydrogen embrittlement. Fiber-reinforced plastics tubing will be developed to complement the existing metal pipeline network since they offer many advantages such as corrosion resistance, low weight and high mechanical strength.
