LCA for Fuel Cells & H2 Technologies - Invitation to Public Consultation

The project FC-HyGuide aims to develop a Guidance Document for Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) studies on hydrogen production and fuel cell technologies. FC and H2 are technologies with a broad range of functions, applications and input processes. PE INTERNATIONAL has the function of the project coordinator and supports the project with its broad experience in the field of life cycle assessment.

Based on the ILCD Handbook procedure and together with specific examples the Guidance Document will offer step by step guidance for LCA practitioners in industry as well as for researchers.

After several months of project work, the project team led by PE INTERNATIONAL and ENEA wants to now invite Stakeholders and interested people to critically comment on the advanced Guidance Document for hydrogen production and fuel cell technologies.

The main goal of this step is to make sure to meet practical requirements of real life cases in a comprehensive way, in the final Guidance Document. Here, individuals and organisations involved in these fields have the possibility to give their inputs and articulate possible concerns.

This public consultation will be carried out from April 1 2011 until April 30 2011. Two documents (one for hydrogen production and one for fuel cell technologies), the templates for comments and further information can be found on: www.fc-hyguide.eu/pc

For more information please contact Oliver Schuller

The 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.
