Transporting more H2 gas

By Gerald Ondrey |

The Linde Group (Munich, Germany; www.linde.com) has developed a new storage technology that will enable a much more efficient transport of larger amounts of hydrogen. The new solution works at a higher pressure of 500 bars (7,250 psi) and uses new, lighter storage materials to more than double the amount of compressed gaseous hydrogen (CGH2) that can be transported in a single truck load. Successful field tests with a first reference client have demonstrated the advantages of the 500-bar technology over conventional 200-bar systems. Linde has opened a 500-bar fueling station at its gases center in Leuna, Germany. The company developed the new 500-bar trailers in collaboration with compressed-gas-storage specialist Wystrach GmbH (Weeze, Germany; www.wystrach-gmbh.de). Each trailer features 100 lightweight composite storage elements developed in collaboration with xperion Energy & Environment GmbH (Kassel, Germany; www.xperion-energy.de. A single trailer can transport over 1,100 kg (13,000 Nm3) of H2 gas. In addition, the trailers can now be filled and emptied in less than 60 minutes.
