H2Fuel - the ultimate transport and storage solution for Hydrogen
Although globally producible and consumable, it seems economically logical that hydrogen is produced in areas where green electricity can be generated cheaply and in abundance, partly for domestic use but mainly for exporting hydrogen to global consumers. Often, this will have to be over long distances and due to the natural properties of hydrogen in liquid or gaseous form, this brings transportation and storage problems and requires costly solutions. In addition, hydrogen gas increases in volume about 900x unbound requiring high pressure or extreme cooling. As hydrogen molecules are the smallest and lightest of all, its natural characteristics cause leakage, make it a highly flammable and explosive matter and has low energy density. But bound to the H2Fuel’s hydrogen carrier, these problems are literally contained and such negative characteristics of hydrogen have been removed, thereby unlocking hydrogen’s true potential in a safe and practical way.
Of all the carriers, H2Fuel has the highest energy density, is light and, if dry, can be transported, stored (silo) and distributed in bulk under atmospheric conditions by conventional means (ship/train/truck) without specific facilities. H2Fuel is ready for use, safe, non-toxic, everlasting, has no leakage and is circular. In case of any calamity, its natural substances are degradable and pose no danger to the environment. H2Fuel can be distributed decentrally and does not require a newly built network. Dry storage of H2Fuel is possible worldwide and requires no unique qualities or conditions. These specific features of H2Fuel, in addition to all the other advantages, make transport, storage and distribution extremely cheap, immediately implementable and at dramatically lower cost than alternatives.
