Announcement: 1st International Webinar “Living on Hydrogen” - Microbial Influence on Hydrogen Underground Storage

Quelle: NORCE and BAM

Everybody is talking about the transformative potential of hydrogen as we gradually transition into a sustainable society. As is the case with all energy resources, finding the best solution to large scale storage remain an indisputable challenge.
Hydrogen underground storage in salt caverns, reservoirs or aquifers has a big potential to provide long-term storage but these environments are always exposed to subsurface indigenous microorganisms. Which raises the main question of our webinar: What role will they play?

In this webinar/workshop we want to give an overview on the topic of hydrogen underground storage and the potential impacts triggered by microorganisms. This includes live presentations of experts on ongoing hydrogen storage initiatives with the possibility to discuss research questions and cooperation on microbiology and beyond.

This free webinar is aimed towards cross-disciplinary scientists, operators and industry members, interested in understanding microbial risks and working on this fascinating topic!
