Research Institution
ABSTRACT: Oceanit proposes to develop a hybrid nanomaterial composite with high hydrogen storage capacity. The nanocomposite material is composed of nanomaterials chemically bonded to support. The unique hierarchical architecture will contribute towards high hydrogen storage capacity. BENEFIT: The successful development of hybrid nanocomposite hydrogen storage technology will enable the wide scale utilization of fuel cells that find many applications at DoD installations for stationary portable power generation, military fleet vehicles, high endurance UAVs, and man-portable applications. Commercial applications for the fuel cells powered by reliable and high storage density hydrogen storage materials are numerous, e.g., portable electronics, automobiles, portable stationary power and many more energy guzzling devices.
