Shell Selects Ilika for Joint Development Project in Hydrogen Storage

31-Oct-2007

Shell Hydrogen B.V., a division of the Shell Group has entered into a joint development project with Ilika Technologies Ltd, the materials discovery company, to develop materials suitable for the solid-state storage of hydrogen.

One of the key barriers to the adoption of hydrogen as a fuel is finding safe and economical solutions for onboard and stationary storage. While cryogenic storage and the use of compressed gas cylinders have been used in pilot projects, a safer and more efficient method could use solid-state storage methods involving the combination of metal alloys with hydrogen, which can reversibly combine with, and release, hydrogen.
