New low cost and scalable materials are being developed in North America to store hydrogen onsite at industrial plants where it is produced as a by-product.
C-Crete Technologies and the US Department of Energy (DOE) are behind the effort, having on Monday (September 20) entered into a cooperative agreement.
Once developed, the duo believes its materials will propose a major improvement over existing technologies such as liquid hydrogen, hydrides and salt caverns.
Commenting on the materials, Dr. Rouzbeh Shahsavari, President of C-Crete Technologies, said, “Not only will our new material be capable of long-duration storage, we envision the storage and subsequent use of the hydrogen by-product in the industrial plants where it is produced.
