Storage Porous Media

Porous systems compared to gaseous and liquid media offer the advantage of lower pressure hydrogen storage, increased safety, design flexibility and reasonable volumetric storage efficiency (TzimasE:2003). However, the technology is not yet mature. Also, there are no imminent solutions for avoiding weight/cost penalties, and tackling thermal management issues associated with this option. The materials included in this category are:

  • Carbon based materials, nanotubes, nanofibres, activated carbons, activated fibres, carbons from templates, powders, doped carbons and cubic boron nitride alloys;
  • Organics, polymers, zeolites, silicas (aerogels), porous silicon.
