Dr Martin Hanton
With a background in petrochemicals (at Sasol) and nearly two decades experience of working with hydrogen, Martin joined TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory in 2018 to spearhead the diversification of the organisation beyond oil and gas. As a result, the organisation is now working on hydrogen and CCS, along with the water industry, and life sciences and healthcare sectors. The focus on hydrogen is how accurate measurement, combined with standards and regulation, is a key enabler of a hydrogen economy. Dr Hanton holds BSc and PhD degrees in Chemistry from the University of Leicester, and an MBA from the Open University. He is a Chartered Chemist, and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
