APPLICATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY:
- Hydrogen storage
- Fuel cells and batteriess
- A new approach for low cost, high capacity hydrogen storage media, fuel cell and battery applications
Researchers at Berkeley Lab have designed a new composite material for hydrogen storage. The nanocomposite materials rapidly absorbs and releases hydrogen at modest temperatures without oxidizing the metal.
