DOD / CBD
This proposal details the method of fabrication for a hierarchical hybrid nanomaterial for oxygen storage vessels. These vessels exceed the volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity of an oxygen cylinder by 330% and 215%, respectively. It is estimated that this oxygen storage device will weigh about 12% of a standard low pressure 2216 psi O2 cylinder and be only 4% of the total volume. The oxygen storage device does not depend on adsorption or a chemical reaction, which reduces the complexity of the system, making it easy to use. Mainstream will determine the optimal fill/seal/release mechanism to ensure close control over the release of oxygen to match the user"s needs. Furthermore, the novel storage medium comprises a safe technology that would gain immediate market penetration in the area of oxygen storage and delivery in the personal protection equipment, rescue equipment, aviation, and medical industries.
