METAL-HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY

 

Hydrogen is a source of cheap energy. WITH the decision of problems of storage and transport of hydrogen, hydrogen energy will be on the leading positions.

Hydrogen is well soluble in many metals (for example, in one volume of palladium dissolves 850 volumes of hydrogen). This property allows you consider the system of hydrogen-metal in the field of technology storage transport of hydrogen. Hydrogen can be stored and transported in the form of hydrides of metals and intermetallic compounds capable to absorb and to give when heated several hundred volumes of hydrogen per unit of its mass.

Metal-hydrogen- based technologies, which KNU them. M. Ostrogradsky is ready to realize:

- powder metallurgy: production of ultra- fine high- purity powders;

- accumulation of hydrogen for automotive engines on the basis of metal-hydrides;

- heat pumps on the basis of metal-hydrides, including air- conditioning for transport and housing;

- storage and transportation of hydrogen.
