Project: Development of Advanced Composite Pressure Vessels for Hydrogen Storage

Acronym ADHERE (Reference Number: 98343)
Duration 02/11/2020 - 01/11/2023
Project Topic Efficient storage of hydrogen is crucial for the success of emerging hydrogen energy markets & is strongly connected to the performance & safety of the components of the supply chain. Currently, hydrogen is stored & transported in a compressed form to satisfy the safety & weight regulations for high pressure gases. Alternatively, composite storage vessels offering high strength & low weight addresses this largely unmet problem with a multi-disciplinary team that aims at developing cost-competitive lightweight composite cylinders with improved mechanical & barrier properties for hydrogen storage using the additive manufacturing technology. Such 3D printed liners with barrier coatings make them impermeable to gases. Further, novel chemo-chromic material-based sensors will be developed & integrated into these structures for real-time monitoring of the diffusion of gas. The 3D printed hydrogen storage vessels will then be incorporated into wind turbines to evaluate their performance.
