Secure Way To Store Hydrogen: Invented!
The scientists at the National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (Neeri) claim to have invented a method of storing and transporting hydrogen safely. The scientist behind the new technology, Rajesh Biniwale, explains that the process goes through three steps. Firstly, hydrogen is combined with hydrocarbons to reduce reactive capacity for safe transportation. It’s liquid at ambient pressure and temperature which allows it to have a higher storage capacity. After being transported, the liquid hydrocarbon is then sprayed over a catalyst to form vapor toluene and vapor hydrogen. A conversion capacity of this process is 98 percent per unit of catalyst utilized.
