Researchers Working On Low-Pressure Hydrogen Storage Solution: Hydrogen fuel-cells hold great promise for clean,...

Hydrogen fuel-cells hold great promise for clean, sustainable fuel for automobiles. But high costs and high-pressure storage tanks have relegated fuel cell vehicles to a handful of test fleets, and it is a techonlogy whose day may never come. But researchers at Berkeley Labs are working on a metal-organic framework that can store enough hydrogen for 300+ mile trips in a cost effective, low-pressure capsule.Working with a three-year, $2.1 million grant from the US Department of Energy, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and GM, Berkeley National Labrotory are producing a metal-organic framework material. The metal-organic framework, or MOF, is a three-dimensional sponge-like lightweight structure composed mostly of carbon atoms. Using synthetic chemicals, these MOF’s can be modified to suck up tremendous amounts of hydrogen. So far the research has allowed ...
