[Award]: LightEnergy project, led by researchers at HPP group, get the second place in the national phase of Yuzz Awards 2016

LightEnergy is a business project on a hydrogen storage system lighter and more compact. It is achived by the deposition of hydrides over aerogels in combination with microwaves, which manages to give greater autonomy flight of drones. The LightEnergy project, promoted by researchers from the High Pressure Processes group of University of Valladolid, Luis Miguel […]

Hydrogen storage in microparticles of silica aerogel for mobile applications

The application of fuel cells using hydrogen as their energy source in vehicles or electronic equipment requires the development of new hydrogen storage devices. Current needs: The simplest and most obvious storage solutions such as compressed gas bottles or cryogenic tanks have important disadvantages due to the low gravimetric/volumetric density of the former (40g/L at […]

Development of hydrogen storage materials by impregnation of hydride precursors in functionalized aerogel supports

     Aerogels are a class of materials with extraordinary properties like high porosity, low density, high thermal insulation value, ultra-low dieletric constant or low index of diffraction. That makes them suitable materials for different interesting applications: thermal insulation, drug encapsulation, desiccant, acoustic barrier, heat storage, supercapacitor, hydrogen storage, catalytic support, adsorption of toxic compounds […]
