"Chances are increasing that the car next to you on the highway could be fueled by hydrogen. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland has been preparing for that day with 16 years of hydrogen safety work. Tuesday the nation will take the next step forward in hydrogen safety as PNNL and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) launch the nonprofit Center for Hydrogen Safety.The center, which will be funded through memberships, is planned as the worldwide leader in coordination and promotion of hydrogen safety."
