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.
