Abstract
Liquid hydrogen is used extensively by NASA to support cryogenic rocket testing. In addition, there are many commercial applications in which delivery and use of cryogenic hydrogen is more economical than gaseous hydrogen. Unfortunately, loss of hydrogen resulting from boiloff can both increase the cost of the end product and create safety concerns. Sustainable Innovations and its teammates, The University of Connecticut and FuelCell Energy, Inc., are developing a highly efficient Hydrogen Recovery System (HRS) based on an electrochemical process that converts cool, gaseous hydrogen to pure, high pressure hydrogen that can be stored for subsequent use. We anticipate that this can bring significant cost savings to NASA's rocket test facilities, and open up exciting new avenues for product commercialization.
