Stay Informed With The MAST3RBoost Project Newsletter

Thu, 25 April, 2024

The MAST3RBoost team have released the project’s first newsletter, allowing you to keep up-to-date with the project’s progress.

The project team, including representatives from TWI, have been working to increase the capacity of ultraporous materials to provide a potential solution for hydrogen storage at low pressures.

Hydrogen storage solutions would assist with the growth of the hydrogen sector and the use of hydrogen fuel cells, which have been shown to outperform batteries for all relevant indicators. This demonstrates the potential of hydrogen fuel cells to decarbonise the European transport sector, eliminating around one-third of all EU CO2 emissions.

This first MAST3RBoost newsletter provides details on the latest happenings with the project including a number of consortium meetings, details of how the project could revolutionise the automotive industry, the use of life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology within the project, and the latest advances in the project.

These advances include utilising biomass such as pistachio shells and eucalyptus sawdust as carbon precursors, with the aim of developing new activated carbons specifically designed to meet market requirements, representing a notable advancement towards sustainable hydrogen storage. In addition, the newsletter details the latest hydrogen storage design research with CFD analysis for cold-adsorbed tank refilling.

You can read the project’s first newsletter to learn more on this exciting work, here.
