Hydrides

The safe, compact, effcient and reliable storage of hydrogen is a key element in a H₂-based energy cycle.

The scientist and engineers at Fraunhofer IFAM Dresden produce and develop hydrogen storage materials and related processing technologies:

    Low-temperature hydrides (-20°C ... 80°C),
    e.g. Zr-Mn, Fe-Ti, La-Ni or Ti-Mn alloys

    Medium-temperature hydrides (80°C ... 200°C),
    e.g. Alanates, Amides

    High-temperature hydrides (200°C ... 400°C),
    e.g. Mg, Mg-Ni, Mg-RE alloys

    Hydride composites with enhanced heat transfer and optimized gas permeability
    characteristics
