The innovative solid-state hydrogen storage solution developed by MINCATEC Energy aims to offer a safe, sustainable, efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally sound option for decarbonizing the mobility, housing, and industrial sectors. Hydrogen is absorbed into a metal powder to create a solid called a metal hydride. Equilibrium is reached at 20°C with a residual pressure of 10 bars, which means that safety is drastically increased compared with hydrogen storage by compression or liquefaction, especially as there are no leaks and no energy input is required to store or release the hydrogen. Thanks to its patented thermal management, the solution offers unrivaled performance in terms of both hydrogen storage speed and outflow, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

  • Fast charge : H2 loading time in less than 10 min
  • High flow-rate up to 500NL/min for 1kg H2 that can be plug in parallel
  • No leak so no indirect greenhouse gas compared to high pressure or liquid H2 storage
  • 100% renewable compared to H2 gazeous storage
  • No rare earth

The Financial benefits

  • 50% costs savings thank to operating costs avoidance compared to high pressure H2 storage
  • 20% costs savings thanks to overall system optimisation thanks to cold generation (cold generated during desorption phase participate to 50% of fuel cell cooling)
