It provides broad coverage of the most important fields of modern hydrogen technology: hydrogen properties, production, storage, conversion to power, and applications in materials science. In so doing, the book covers all the pertinent materials classes: metal hydrides, inorganic porous solids, organic materials, and nanotubes. The book deals with the possibilities of an energetic utilization of hydrogen. This energy carrier can be produced from the unlimited energy sources solar energy, wind energy and hydropower, and from nuclear energy. It is also in a position to one day supplement or supersede the fossil energy carriers oil, coal and gas. One widely acknowledged strategy is the use of hydrogen as a carbon-free source of energy instead of burning fossil fuels. This monograph fills the gap for concise but comprehensive literature on this interdisciplinary topic, involving as it does chemical, physical, biological and engineering challenges. Author: Andreas Züttel. Abstract. This book deals with energy, and specifically with the energy carrier hydrogen. It is not a book about hydrogen chemistry. The chemical-physical specifications and characteristics of hydrogen are fundamental to the discussion, but they are taken for granted and are not really its by: 1.

An attempt has also been made to prove that hydrogen's safety characteristics indeed per­ mit its handling and use as an energy carrier. Hopefully, all this will show that hydrogen, together with electricity, could be the universally employable energy carrier of a future non-fossil energy . This book will tell you all you need to know about what we don't know.' Professor Jim Skea, Research Director, UK Energy Research Centre 'From the Editor of Nature to the presenter of Top Gear, all believe that hydrogen as a widely used, secure and sustainable energy carrier is essential and Paul Ekins. The challenge of hydrogen gas as the energy carrier of the future has attracted attention to novel reforming processes such as steam reforming, autothermal reforming, and aqueous phase reforming of bio-alcohols, with a consideration of their thermodynamic and kinetic aspects. Mar 24,  · About this book Owing to the limited resources of fossil fuels, hydrogen is proposed as an alternative and environment-friendly energy carrier. However, its potential is limited by storage problems, especially for mobile applications.

Book Editor(s): Prof. Dr. Andreas Züttel Empa (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Research and Testing, an ETH Domain Institute), Laboratory for Hydrogen & Energy, Dübendorf, Switzerland. Considering hydrogen produced from renewable energy such as wind power and taking the efficiency of state-of-the-art electrolysis plants as being around 85%, this also leads to an overall primary energy-to-wheel efficiency of about 25% for a fuel cell vehicle, but in this case, without emission of pollutants. Development of cheap, reliable hydrogen sensors is another very important research field if hydrogen is to be introduced as a future energy carrier in both small and large-scale applications. The introduction of hydrogen-fuelled vehicles is a good example as such a car may contain multiple hydrogen detection by: nearly unlimited energy source an energy carrier like hydrogen will be needed in order to store and transport the energy. This book is a comprehensive overview of the basic knowledge about hydro-gen and the opinions about the potential and future development of hydrogen science and technology. The primary focus of the book is the description of the.
