Innovative tank design and groundbreaking infrastructure model to enhance the availability of renewable energy by collecting, storing and transporting hydrogen, biomethane, nitrogen and LNG

Project description

New tank for transport of renewables

Hurray for hydrogen and other renewable fuels like liquid biomethane, nitrogen and LNG – all becoming a necessity. Hydrogen, for instance, can be produced anywhere there is water and a source of electricity. As for hydrogen-fuelled vehicles, they do not emit greenhouse gases or other pollutants. However, these fuels require significant infrastructure and transportation. For instance, cryogenic tankers with specialised drivers/operators are necessary and expensive. To facilitate transportation, the EU-funded GBG System project is developing lightweight composite tanks for collecting, transporting and storing cryogenic materials, specifically gaseous fuels. These new tankers will revolutionise the collection, distribution and storage of renewable fuels in cryogenic and gaseous forms.
