As the 12th edition of Gas Analysis is approaching* we figured it would be interesting to learn more about the event. And who would better know the subject than one of the two presidents of this 2024 edition.
In this interview, Annarita Baldan, Chief scientist at VSL National Metrology Institute of the Netherlands, talks to us about gas analysis, metrology and hydrogen (which will be the chief focus of the first day of the symposium).
The leading international symposium and exhibition for gas analysis (held every two years) will be taking place in Paris for the second year in a row. It will be “an opportunity to meet peers, technical staff, producers of gases and instruments and users. It is also an opportunity to learn about the newest developments in gas analytical methods, advances in metrology and to share knowledge and experience with people coming from different countries” says Annarita Baldan.
Foreword on the interview of Annarita Baldan
During the interview she mentions the recent shift of the programme from conventional fuels such as natural gas to more sustainable gases like hydrogen. Annarita Baldan also speaks about the challenges in terms of measurement and metrology when it comes to hydrogen (infrastructure, quantity, quality, impurities etc.).
She concludes the interview by saying a few words about the importance of controlling the levels of impurities in hydrogen. Indeed those are critical for some market segments such as mobility since impure hydrogen can damage the fuel cell for instance.

*It will be held in conjunction with Hyvolution from January 30 to February 1, 2024 in Paris Porte de Versailles – Hall 4
