European consultation on life cycle assessment of hydrogen production and fuel cell technologies

The European FC-HyGuide project aims to develop Guidance Documents for life cycle assessment (LCA) studies on hydrogen production and fuel cell technologies. The draft Guidance Documents are open for public consultation during April 2011.

The FC-HyGuide project is financed by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), a public-private partnership supporting research, technological development, and demonstration activities in fuel cell and hydrogen energy technologies in Europe.

So far FC-HyGuide has involved several months of project work, a Technical Expert Workshop (held in mid-February in Brussels), and the revision of the draft Guidance Document.

The project team is now inviting stakeholders and interested organizations and individuals to give their input and raise possible concerns on the advanced Guidance Documents for:

  • hydrogen production, and
  • fuel cell technologies.

The main goal of this step is to ensure that the final Guidance Document meets real-world requirements in a comprehensive way.

This public consultation will be carried out from 1 April until 30 April, with draft documents available for hydrogen production and for fuel cell technologies.
