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.

Engineering for solid hydrogen: designing nanoporous materials for enhanced hydrogen storage

Dr Valeska Ting (University of Bath)

This project will investigate the structural (pore) characteristics of carbon-based hydrogen storage materials that enable solid-like, supercritical hydrogen storage. The aim is to understand how new materials can be constructed that will provide the same level of densification alonside higher pore volumes for increased storage capacity.
