Hydrogen Storage Last month, the Catalysts business unit of Clariant (Munich, Germany; www.clariant.com) formed an alliance with Hydrogenious Technologies GmbH (HT; www.hydrogenious.net), to provide reliable, scalable and safe hydrogen supply solutions for a wide variety of applications. HT, a Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU; Germany) spin-off, developed a means of transporting H2 by chemically binding the molecules to liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC). In the method, hydrogenation of dibenzyltoluene via Clariant’s EleMax H catalyst allows hydrogen to be “stored,” while its dehydrogenation with EleMax D “releases” H2 on demand. Non-explosive, non-toxic and of low flammability, the diesel-like hydrogen-bound compound is not classified a hazardous good, and remains in a useable and convenient liquid state through a broad temperature range of –39 to 390°C at ambient pressure. These factors allow considerably easier installation at industrial locations, as well as commercial and public fueling sites, even in close range of or within residential areas. It furthermore allows for the handling flexibility required to enable a widespread rollout of H2 production from renewable power sources. First…
