KurzfassungA German SME (university spin off) plans to elaborate a project proposal for the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) call in 2012. The project will be about the development of various stationary and mobile hydrogen tanks with high operational safety, energy efficiency and storage capacity based on novel nano-porous light-metal carbon composites. SME searches for academic & industrial partners with experience in Nanophysics & H2-Technology
and Nanomaterial Production & Chemistry
Whereas electricity generation from hydrogen (H2) using fuel cells (FC) and hydrogen production applying renewable energies are already mature technologies, it is not possible today to safely store and transport very large quantities of H2 in lightweight tanks.
According to the requirements of the topics called, SP1-JTI-FCH.2012.1.4, - 1.6 and - 4.5, the objective of the HySSTank project is to develop an integrated H2-tank FC combisystem equipped with an energy management system of high energy efficiency. This system controls the flows of H2-gas, heat and electrical current between tank, FC and a suitable heat accumulator using combined heat and power (CHP). Besides a single larger tank containing sufficient hydrogen to guarantee a 600 km range of a middle class car, it is intended also to divide it into 4-5 smaller quickly exchangeable H2 cartridges. The prototype of a real H2-tank system will be developed accordingly.
The energy carrier H2 as pollution-free fuel constitutes huge benefits to the environment because when combined with oxygen in a FC only water but no CO2 and no other polluting climate gases or carcinogenic soot particles are produced. Also noise pollution is drastically reduced. Therefore, electric current generation with such a novel H2-tank FC combisystem can most favourably be applied also for stationary and mobile APU´s and even much more fa-vourable in the areas of aviation.
Instead of storing H2 as highly compressed gas (at extreme pressures of up to 70 MPa, as commonly used) or as liquefied gas (at the very low temperature of -253 °C), the main invention of HySSTank is the development of a mechanically, thermally and chemically stable, solid H2 storage material. The solid storage media, we are aiming at, are metal-carbon composit nanomaterials of complex molecular structure with an extremely large specific surface doped with catalyst. For these storage materials various lightmetal and different nanocarbon modifications will be applied. They will be synthesized by various production techniques, out of which the most economical and efficient process for industrial-scale mass-production will be selected. By these sponge-like, highly porous, nano-structured materials hydrogen will be weakly and reversibly bound in atomic form and at much higher densities. The synthesized nanomaterials will either be filled into tank vessels with volumes comparable to standard gazoline tanks as fine powder or inserted therein as thin layers deposited on light, thin substrate foils. Thus, in combination with a FC, a CO2-free energy source will be obtained, which is far superior to a conventional Li-ion battery, concerning weight, safety, energy and power densities, in particular. Since hydrogen is thus finely and homogeneously distributed in a solid-state lattice, it is stored securely and with high operational safety. As future options, also portable mini-tanks for small electronic devices can be designed or large, stationary tanks for storage of H2 gas produced by solar and wind power plants, currently under development worldwide at on- and off-shore sites.
