An ambitious project assessing the storage of hydrogen in subsurface porous rocks has developed a user-friendly tool that it says will enable low-carbon project developers to accurately calculate the thermodynamic and transport properties of hydrogen mixtures.
The freely available software, H2ThermoBank, allows a precise estimate of hydrogen stream properties – such as density, viscosity and thermal capacity – under varying temperature and pressure conditions.
The use of hydrogen as a fuel for heating and industry can significantly reduce our carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in line with climate targets. However, this depends on large-scale seasonal storage, which can be provided by subsurface porous rocks.
The ability to estimate the properties of hydrogen mixtures will be essential to developing opportunities for hydrogen usage as well as its transport and storage.
