[Thesis]: Innovative Strategies to Enhance Properties of Solid Hydrogen Storage Materials Based on Hydrides

Dr. Miriam Rueda defended her thesis on Friday 18th November 2016 at the University of Valladolid (international PhD by University of Pavia). Nowadays, the development of renewable energy resources is attracting much more attention in order to reduce economic and environmental problems associated to the use of fossil fuels. However, their production is variable during time […]

[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 […]

Reversible hydrogen sorption in the composite made of magnesium borohydride and silica aerogel

The application of hydrogen as an energy vector requires the development of new hydrogen storage systems. Magnesium borohydride Mg(BH4)2 is a promising hydrogen storage material because of its high hydrogen storage capacity (14,8wt% H2, 0.112 Kg/L). However, it is still limited by slow hydrogen release kinetics and by the harsh conditions required for reversible hydrogen […]

Light hydrogen storage materials for mobile applications

Nowadays, economy and society depend on the use of fossil fuels. This dependence generates severe environmental, economic and political problems. For this reason, the development of alternative energy sources which are able to help to mitigate these problems is a priority research and development area. In recent years, this interest has boosted important advances in […]
