Final Report - HYCONES (Hydrogen storage in carbon cones)

Project ID: 32970
Funded under: FP6-NMP


This is the final report of the HYCONES project, which has investigated the use of a radically new material, namely carbon cones (CCs), as a practical, inexpensive, lightweight, high capacity H2 storage material capable of storing / releasing H2 in a temperature window well suited for mobile applications.

The report begins with some background on hydrogen storage materials and practices and then states the project's objectives that relate to this challenge. It later explains the structure of the project into work packages and then describes the work performed, the experiments conducted and the knowledge obtained. The report concludes with dissemination actions and plans.
