Hydrogen exhibits the highest heating value per mass of all chemical fuels. Furthermore, hydrogen is regenerative and environmentally friendly. There are two reasons why hydrogen is not the major fuel of today’s energy consumption. First of all, hydrogen is just an energy carrier. And, although it is the most abundant element in the universe, it has to be produced, since on earth it only occurs in the form of water and hydrocarbons. This implies that we have to pay for the energy, which results… 

Hydrogen Storage Techniques for Stationary and Mobile Applications: A Review

With the rapid increase of global warming and CO2 emissions from conventional fuels, the world is seeking an international commitment from all-dominating countries for an emission cut down of about

Hydrogen Storage by Physisorption: An Overview

Hydrogen is the lightest and most abundant element in the universe and an energy carrier. It can be produced from several sources using various methods, such as, electrolysis of water or reforming of

Clathrate hydrogen hydrate--a promising material for hydrogen storage.

A new type of hydrate, namely the clathrate hydrogen hydrates, were recently reported, opening a new direction for hydrogen storage.

29 Hydrogen Energy

Hydrogen is a good alternative to fossil fuels for the production, distribution, and storage of energy. Steam reforming of natural gas, or steam methane reformation (SMR), is one of the most

Production and storage of hydrogen: Present scenario and future perspective

Hydrogen (H 2 ), an environmentally clean energy-carrier gas, is produced mainly from fossil fuel, biomass and water. H 2 (90%) is produced at high temperature by the reactions of natural gas or

Experimental Characterization of an Alkaline Electrolyser and a Compression System for Hydrogen Production and Storage

Storing renewable energy in chemicals, like hydrogen, can bring various benefits like high energy density, seasonal storability, possible cost reduction of the final product, and the potential to let

Compact Electric Energy Storage for Marine Vehicles Using on-Board Hydrogen Production

The use of electric energy in marine vessels has been increasing in recent years. In general, it is motivated by the low ecological impact. However, in the case of underwater vehicles it is



LiBH4 a new hydrogen storage material

Novel Mechanism of Hydrogen Storage in Carbon Nanotubes

Hydrogen storage in carbon based materials, especially in carbon nanotubes (CNTs), has been intensively studied for applications to fuel cells, secondary batteries, or supercapacitors [1–7]. Two

Electrochemical storage of hydrogen in carbon single wall nanotubes

One still not satisfactory solved problem for the use of hydrogen as clean fuel is the safe and efficient storage of hydrogen. Currently cryo tanks, gas cylinders or metal hydrides are used.

Hydrogen-storage materials for mobile applications

Recent developments in the search for innovative materials with high hydrogen-storage capacity are presented.

Hydrogen storage in sonicated carbon materials

Abstract.The hydrogen storage in purified single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs), graphite and diamond powder was investigated at room temperature and ambient pressure. The samples were sonicated in 5

Anodic Oxidation of Alkali Borohydrides Catalyzed by Nickel

Borohydrides in alkaline media are potential fuels for fuel cells due to their high energy and power density. In this work, we studied the anodic oxidation of borohydrides on a nickel electrode. The
