Kiwa and hydrogen
Insight into the impact of sustainable gases
Green gas and biogas are sustainable, climate-friendly substitutes for natural gas. At Kiwa we are investigating the impact of introducing green gas, biogas and LNG. What is the impact of these gases on piping materials and infrastructure? Are additional safety measures needed? How can these gases be distributed? Are new settlement models needed? Kiwa’s Gas Consultancy team has a wealth of experience in the gas sector and helps energy suppliers and network operators to find answers to these questions.

Kiwa is also active in the Cleantech public-private network, striving to make the Apeldoorn, Deventer and Zutphen regions fully energy-neutral in 2030, with a sustainable living environment, ‘green’ transport, local education in sustainability and ethical employment practice.
Development of equipment for sustainable fuels
The deployment of new, sustainable energy sources requires specially developed equipment. Kiwa helps manufacturers and suppliers with the design and development of heat pumps and other innovative appliances and related components. We also work with several major automotive manufacturers. We recently developed and implemented a complex test set-up for complete LNG drive systems and components for one such manufacturer. Kiwa’s expertise in LNG, CNG, hydrogen and biogas is helping to make the transport sector more sustainable.
As a Knowledge Institute in the field of energy, Kiwa has been involved in the development of numerous international (ISO) standards. Our experts have seats on Standards committees in the several countries.
