12th International Conference on Hydrogen Production (ICH2P-2021)

12th International Conference on Hydrogen Production (ICH2P-2021)

ICH2P is back! Submit your abstract by July 2nd. The ICH2P-2021 edition will be focused on scientific developments on sustainable hydrogen generation, purification, storage, and utilization.


Dates: 19th to 23rd September 2021

This year the International Conference on Hydrogen Production (ICH2P-2021) will be held fully online. The motto of the conference is “Hydrogen for a green future” because green brings with a sense of hope: the hope to get back soon to a normal life, but also the colour of a sustainable world that takes care of the environment, climate, and human life through the adoption of new technologies, exploiting renewable sources and eco-friendly energy systems. Hydrogen is part of this visionary world’s scenario and it will play a key role in future sustainable development.

Thus, all industrial strategies and scientific efforts about hydrogen production, separation, utilization, and storage are part of the so-called “Hydrogen green-deal”, one of the biggest challenges the world is facing, and will provide a great opportunity for making reliable and sustainable the world’s perspectives.

The ICH2P-2021 edition will be focused on the scientific developments on the sustainable generation of hydrogen via electrolysis, solar, wind, biological, catalytic and photo-catalytic based systems, paying particular attention to the production of hydrogen from renewables. Furthermore, the conference will provide the opportunity to share the latest researches on hydrogen utilization in transportation, fuel cells, for greenhouse gases mitigation, and industry, as well as on hydrogen storage (chemical carriers, hydrides, gas, liquefaction) and other emerging applications for industrial hydrogen generation and purification including the contribution of membrane engineering and hydrogen opportunities in space missions. ICH2P-2021 will offer a virtual forum where latest advances, technical information and dissemination of research projects in the areas of hydrogen production, separation and utilization can be shared, favoring exciting debates on the future directions and priorities of the hydrogen economy for a greener and sustainable future.

The conference is mainly directed to researchers, scientists, engineers and stakeholders involved in the field of hydrogen generation and utilization technologies, ranging from theoretical investigations to technical developments, industry, management and marketing. In this edition, a particular emphasis will be given on specific thematics involving green hydrogen production through the exploitation of renewable sources and eco-friendly technological systems.
