System Development

In order to use metal hydrides as hydrogen stores, for hydrogen compression, heat pumps or hydrogen purification, it is necessary to develop new arrangements for the metal hydride inside the vessels as well as new geometries of the vessels themselves. Thus, the required flow of hydrogen and the efficient heating an cooling of the hydride are ensured. Moreover, it is essential to integrate these vessels into the application where they are used in such a way as to reach the highest possible efficiency and compactness for the whole system.
