Pacific Northwest National Laboratory scientists are investigating the promising hydrogen storage possibilities of the common Earth-abundant salt chemistry known as baking soda. One of the most promising renewable energy carriers is clean hydrogen, when it is produced without fossil fuels. It’s a promising idea because the most abundant element in the universe is hydrogen, found […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Tohoku University researchers drilling into the magnesium hydride hydrogen storage concept are zeroing into the problems. Magnesium hydride has long been touted for its potential to store large amounts of hydrogen, something essential if hydrogen is to play a role in powering a sustainable future. Yet, sluggish dehydrogenation kinetics and the high temperature required […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Osaka University researchers have demonstrated a proof-of-concept for a novel molecular hydrogen production method that bypasses the need for expensive purification steps. They developed a system where hydrogen is separated and stored in liquid organic hydrogen carriers by catalysis of triaryl boranes in one seamless process. The results of this work will help facilitate […]

University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and Queensland University of Technology (QUT) researchers have announced a new design for solid-state hydrogen storage that could significantly reduce charging times. Hydrogen is gaining significant attention as an efficient way to store ‘green energy’ from renewables such as wind and solar. Compressed gas is the most common form of […]

A Northwestern University research team has designed and synthesized a new material with ultrahigh porosity and surface area for the storage of hydrogen and methane for fuel cell-powered vehicles. These gases are attractive clean energy alternatives to carbon dioxide-producing fossil fuels. The material is a type of a metal-organic framework (MOF) that can store significantly […]
