Hydrogen Safety Solutions

Your Hydrogen Safety Experts

WHA International, Inc. has been a leader in hydrogen safety since 1988. Many of our engineers come directly from NASA or the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). At NASA, hydrogen fuels and fuel cells were pioneered through the Space Program, while renewable energy technologies and infrastructure for hydrogen production, transportation, and use are researched at NREL. Our consultants played pivotal roles in the technology development and safe use of hydrogen at both institutions, are internationally-recognized authorities on hydrogen safety, and are uniquely equipped to address your specific concerns.
