Time span of the project
General information
Name of the project:

Metal-hydride-based technologies: from materials to hydrogen power storage and conversion systems

Goals and objectives
Goals of project:

Creating a new laboratory of metal-hydride-based power engineering technologies on the grounds of the Department of Functional Materials for Chemical Power Sources of the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Project objective: 

Creating original academic, engineering and technological approaches for the development and implementation of new metal hydride materials and technologies of integrated hydrogen systems characterized by compact dimensions, safety, ease of use and maintenance.

Research directions: Power engineering

The practical value of the study
Planned project results:

  1. The creation of a laboratory conducting world-class research and applied development in the field of new materials and technological solutions for environmentally friendly resource efficient hydrogen power engineering.
  2. The creation of an international education center on the basis of the laboratory that will prepare highly-qualified specialists in the field of hydrogen power engineering technologies. A new lecture course will be introduced in the education center, «Hydrogen power engineering technologies» for senior-year students of the Faculty of Fundamental Physico-chemical Engineering of the Moscow State University. A guidebook on hydrogen power engineering will also be produced.
  3. Collaboration with Russian companies (InEnergy Group, Dragtsvetmet, Specialized Design Bureau for Electrical Chemistry, Rosatom, Russian Railways), interested in the practical implementation of designs produced by the Laboratory.
  4. Collaboration of the Laboratory with partner divisions of the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, with leading Russian (Moscow State University, Joint Institute for High Temperatures of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow Institute of Physical Technology, Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ioffe Institute, Institute of Catalysis of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences) and foreign academic teams.
  5. The development of at least three prototypes of integrated hydrogen power units that will rely on metal hydrides and implement the processes of compact hydrogen storage, its compression to high pressures, storage and utilization of low-potential heat energy.
