New hydrogen storage materials under development in the US

September 21, 2021

New low cost and scalable materials are being developed in North America to store hydrogen onsite at industrial plants where it is produced as a by-product.

C-Crete Technologies and the US Department of Energy (DOE) are behind the effort, having on Monday (September 20) entered into a cooperative agreement.

Once developed, the duo believes its materials will propose a major improvement over existing technologies such as liquid hydrogen, hydrides and salt caverns.

Commenting on the materials, Dr. Rouzbeh Shahsavari, President of C-Crete Technologies, said, “Not only will our new material be capable of long-duration storage, we envision the storage and subsequent use of the hydrogen by-product in the industrial plants where it is produced.”
