Hydrogen Sponge

DConT2

SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific (SSCP) seeks to commercialize through license agreements and collaborative research and development agreements a non-fossil fuel means for the generation, safe storage, and recovery of hydrogen gas for use in fuel cell and hydrogen-based technologies. SSCP has developed a solar-powered "Hydrogen Sponge" that generates and safely stores hydrogen gas for use in fuel cell and hydrogen-based technologies without the use of fossil fuel energy. It consists of a modified version of a standard solar cell mated with a uniquely designed silicon substrate. The substrate consists of precisely engineered micro-chambers that provide both a micro-structure for electrodes and reservoirs for the collection and safe storage of hydrogen gas. The micro-chambers allow hydrogen gas to be safely stored without the need for compression.
