Gexcon’s Dr. Franz Zdravistch presented on the importance of understanding hazards and maintaining safety in the hydrogen industry.

On October 15th, Dr. Franz Zdravistch, Gexcon’s Chief Training Officer, spoke about hydrogen safety during Mexico’s Business and Energy Forum 2020 held virtually by the Anáhuac University. Dr. Zdravistch mentioned that in order to comply with the SDG 7 initiative, especially during an energy transition period, safety is one aspect that should not be overlooked. He also mentioned about the importance of understanding hazards in the hydrogen industry can be achieved through safety studies that can include the use of advanced engineering software.

“By understanding the consequence of potential hazards related to hydrogen and the probability of the occurrence, we can prevent and protect our employees, assets and the environment from possible catastrophic events,” said Dr. Zdravistch.

El Ingeniero en Jefe y encargado de capacitación de software en Gexcon presentó la importancia de la seguridad industrial en el proceso de transición energética hacia energías limpias y renovables – Ponente en el Foro de Negocios y Energía 2020 de la Universidad Anáhuac de México

El experto de Gexcon en la realización de estudios de seguridad y en el liderazgo de la capacitación en diversas herramientas computacionales presentó la importancia de comprender los peligros y mantener la seguridad en la industria del hidrógeno.

El 15 de octubre, el Dr. Franz Zdravitsch, Ingeniero en Jefe y encargado de capacitación de software de Gexcon, habló sobre la seguridad en el uso del hidrógeno durante el Foro de Negocios y Energía de la Universidad Anáhuac México 2020. El Dr. Zdravitsch mencionó que en el esfuerzo por cumplir con el ODS 7, especialmente durante la transición energética, la seguridad es un aspecto que no debemos pasar por alto. También mencionó la importancia de comprender los peligros y riesgos en la industria del hidrógeno como una alternativa de energías limpias, mediante la ejecución de estudios de seguridad, tanto de modelaje de consecuencias como evaluaciones de riesgos.

“El hidrógeno es una fuente de energía limpia y segura, pero debido a sus propiedades físico-químicas debe ser manejado apropiadamente. Al comprender las consecuencias de los peligros relacionados con el hidrógeno y la probabilidad de que ocurran, podemos prevenir y proteger al personal, instalaciones y el medio ambiente de posibles eventos catastróficos.

El Dr. Zdravistch  también mencionó que la compañía Gexcon ha sido un líder en estudios de seguridad relacionados con el hidrógeno, a través de su participación en proyectos de investigación así como  de consultoría, y el software FLACS-CFD ya es usado en varias partes del mundo para este tipo de estudios

Sobre el ponente

El Dr. Franz Zdravitsch tiene más de 30 años de experiencia en la aplicación de tecnologías de dinámica de fluidos computacional para estudios de ingeniería, incluyendo la predicción de consecuencias y riesgos relacionados con eventos de dispersión, derrames, explosión e incendios
