Making hydrogen easy to deliver

Project description

Carbon-free alternative for the transition to a hydrogen economy

In recent years, there has been a growing need for decarbonisation in a wider effort to mitigate climate change. Hydrogen is one of the most important energy vectors that could be used to achieve this goal: with three times more energy density by weight than gasoline, it can play a strategic role in the transition towards a low-carbon economy. Unfortunately, its transport and storage present great challenges as currently they aren't very safe or economical. The EU-funded HYDROSIL project aims to overcome these challenges by developing a novel hydrogen carrier made of a liquid silicon hydride derivative. The new carrier will be non-toxic, non-explosive and therefore safe, while also allowing the on-demand release of hydrogen on-site.
