The Hydrogen Sponge
H2GO Power's patent pending technology involved a highly porous nano-particle based smart material that combines production, storage and controlled release of hydrogen. This three feature approach allows for enhanced safety and complete fuel utilisation.
The catalytic properties of the material allow for hydrogen production through the hydrolysis of metal and chemical hydrides at ambient temperature.
The produced hydrogen is then trapped within the polymer framework, which acts as a storage medium.
The stored hydrogen is released through the application of heat, with hydrogen release occurring at a specific tuneable temperature allowing for on-off control.
