Partnership shows promise addressing the largest logistical issues in bringing hydrogen to scale: storage and transfer

October 15, 2019 |

In New York, Plug Power and Washington State University have entered a partnership to develop cryogenic hydrogen cooling technology in a quest to minimize one of the largest logistical issues in delivering hydrogen at scale— efficient storage and transfer. The technology the partnership seeks to develop is a method that—by optimizing a catalytic reaction with hydrogen in a “supercritical” state— will reduce the cost and efficiency of small, distributed liquid hydrogen systems. The three-phase project is currently in its first stage, where the teams are working to advance the fundamental understanding of the technology at cryogenic temperatures. CEO of Plug Power believes that “In the near future, demand from the fast-growing FCV market will outpace the current hydrogen fuel supply because of issues related to transportation, infrastructure, and storage.”
