Materials News

Throughout the hydrogen value chain, a wide range of metallic and non-metallic materials are used to serve many different purposes. Their selection is based on numerous factors, such as material properties, availability, and cost, as well as process conditions and other requirements concerning strength, weight, temperature, pressure, corrosion resistance, conductivity, etc. In this section you can find news items related to the materials used in all equipment associated with water electrolysis, hydrogen transport, storage, and processing.

Hydrogen storage materials from industrial waste

Metal hydrides are seen as a potential solution for hydrogen storage. However, the mining and production of high-purity materials emit large amounts of CO2. Researchers from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon have now demonstrated that such materials can be produced from recycled industrial waste.

Transporting green hydrogen in the form of iron

The transport of green hydrogen in the form of iron. This is the vision of the ‘Me2H2 iron-steam process’ project coordinated by the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) and funded by the German government. The project team aims to develop a concept for its implementation on an industrial scale.
