New gas storage method for fuel cell vehicles

A research team led by Northwestern University in Illinois has designed and synthesised new materials with ultrahigh porosity and surface area for the storage of hydrogen and methane for fuel cell powered vehicles.

The designer materials, a type of a metal-organic framework, can store significantly more hydrogen and methane than conventional adsorbent materials at much safer pressures and at much lower costs.

“We’ve developed a better onboard storage method for hydrogen and methane gas for next-generation clean energy vehicles,” said Omar Farha, who led the research.
