New hydrogen storage research leads to development of promising materials

USCD engineers may have found a way to efficiently and safely store hydrogen. Researchers at University of California, San Diego have developed new ceramic materials for hydrogen storage that have been created using a blend of barium hexaboride, calcium hexaboride and strontium. These compounds could be manufactured at lower costs compared to traditional methods. The ceramics manufacturing process is not as complex and is faster than standard methods that are used for producing these kinds of materials. Professor Olivia Graeve from the Jacobs School of Engineering at UCSD said, “We…
