Design and Optimization of Hydrogen Supply Chains for a Sustainable Future

Sofía De-León Almaraz and Catherine Azzaro-Pantel,    University of Toulouse, Toulouse, France


The lack of existing infrastructure for hydrogen deployment is largely reported in the dedicated literature. The aim of this chapter is to present and define various pathways and technologies that can be followed to model the hydrogen supply chain (HSC) through supply chain management (SCM) concepts to efficiently integrate suppliers, manufacturers, and distributors so that hydrogen can be distributed at the right quantities, to the right locations and, at the right time, in order to optimize the main criteria (e.g., cost, risk, etc.). The modeling approaches ...
