Doc. 220/19Environmental Guidelines for Permitting Hydrogen Plants Producing Less Than 2 Tonnes Per Day

Small hydrogen plants used in, for example, fuelling applications have a low environmental impact due to size and technology employed.

Over regulation of these plants is a barrier to the development of hydrogen as an energy carrier. On-site hydrogen production is also expected to be required in relation to road vehicle refuelling.

This publication is on the environmental impacts and operational controls for these packaged hydrogen plants and is intended to be used as guidance for permitting these plants so that simpler permitting can be applied.
