Hybrid Nanoporous Adsorption / High-pressure Gas Hydrogen Storage Tanks

Dr Tim Mays (University of Bath)

The project aims to determine how nanoporous adsorbents may be incorporated into Type IV high-pressure gas tanks (operating at ~70 MPa and ~298 K) to enhance hydrogen capacity in transport applications, optimise storage conditions and confer additional benefits in terms of thermal and mechanical properties.

If the project ideas work, tank safety may be improved – contributing to better personal and property protection for hydrogen-fuelled vehicles.
