IChemE - Webinar: The Unbearable Lightness of Hydrogen

22nd November 2021 6:00 pm

This webinar will look into the role that hydrogen can play in our energy system, focusing on the specific challenge of hydrogen storage. Hydrogen is a difficult gas to compress and in order for it to be used in applications such as mobile vehicles, it needs to occupy a small volume, so its volumetric density needs to increase. Common methods to improve the volumetric density of hydrogen include compression at 350 or 700 atm or liquefaction of hydrogen at 20 K, but research is underway in a variety of alternatives, including chemical storage (forming hydrides or liquid carriers) or adsorptive storage. The webinar will present some of the pros and cons about the different hydrogen storage methods and will include recent developments in research on hydrogen storage materials.
