Hydrogen Storage Technologies: New Materials, Transport, and Infrastructure (3527326839) cover image
An exploration of current and possible future hydrogen storage technologies, written from an industrial perspective. The book describes the fundamentals, taking into consideration environmental, economic and safety aspects, as well as presenting infrastructure requirements, with a special focus on hydrogen applications in production, transportation, military, stationary and mobile storage.

A comparison of the different storage technologies is also included, ranging from storage of pure hydrogen in different states, via chemical
storage right up to new materials already under development. Throughout, emphasis is placed on those technologies with the potential
for commercialization.
