Handling hydrogen

  • 30-Jun-2008 09:03 EDT

The U.S. Department of Energy has selected the proposal put forth by Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide Inc. for final negotiations for a contract to develop next-generation manufacturing technologies for hydrogen storage vessels. The total value of this project, to be done in partnership with The Boeing Co., is $5.6 million over a period of three years. The goal of this project is to leverage the advances in precision composite material processing technologies in the aerospace sector to develop innovative manufacturing techniques for hydrogen storage tanks, with the intent to significantly drive down costs. As prime contractor, Quantum will provide overall coordination and leverage its extensive experience in hydrogen systems. Boeing Phantom Works, the company’s advanced research and development organization, will adapt precision composite manufacturing technologies that it developed for the aerospace industry. The Quantum-Boeing team has partnered with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to enhance and expand this development program.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
