The HyCARE Consortium met at Hereon in Germany on December 13 and 14, 2021. The meeting has been crucial to align on the development activities of the HyCare system, which is currently under assembly at Stühff GmbH in Geestacht, Germany.
The coming year will be the final one for the HyCARE project. The system prototype will be finalized and it will be transferred to Engie Lab Criegen for testing and validation. The Hycare tank is expected to store up to 40 kg of hydrogen via metal hydrides. The main innovation is the use of Phase Changing Materials to activate the hydrogen absorption and desorption at high efficiency and low pressure (30 bars).
More information will be published in the 3rd Project Newsletter that will be released by the end of the year.
