Revolutionary Way to Store Hydrogen on a Liquid Carrier

17. 5. 2021 | Hydrogen Fuel News | www.hydrogenfuelnews.com

Hydrogen is the most environmentally friendly of the earth’s energy resources. It is also the most abundant. Battery technology has improved markedly over the last few decades but is limited to cars and small trucks due to its size, weight and lengthy recharging times. Thus, the lure of hydrogen remains strong with many millions being invested on ways to produce and use hydrogen in a cost-effective manner.

What has been missing are improved methods for safely storing, transporting and dispensing hydrogen. Kontak is an early-stage technology company in Seattle that has patented a novel method for storing hydrogen chemically bound to a liquid carrier and safely releasing it on demand. Kontak’s method is safer and much less expensive than compressed or liquid hydrogen and can carry up to three times as much hydrogen energy as compressed hydrogen.

Storing hydrogen

Kontak’s novel release method uses up to 320,000 microtubes bundled together and heated by precisely controlled magnetic induction. The key: expose each molecule of the carrier to a precisely heated catalyst. The patent includes an infrared imager to monitor the temperature of each microtube and adjust heating in real time. The hydrogen is filtered and sent directly to a fuel cell.
