Fermin Cuevas (CNRS) hold a webinar on the HyCARE research activity related to TiFe intermetallics for large-scale stationary hydrogen storage. The webinar involved 15 students of the Master de Energías y Combustibles para el Futuro, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
The webinar presented the HyCARE project and described the tailoring and optimization of the allow composition for hydrogen storage performed by CNRS. It explained the R&D activities which inlude alloy design, tuning to thermodynamic operational conditions, activation and kinetic issues, as well as cycling stability, resistance to impurities and limited use of raw critical materials.
Fermin Cuevas, Research Director of CNRS, has presented the HyCARE project in the launch event of the French Research network on hydrogen research. Cuevas’ presentation focused on the HyCARE’s journey: from laboratory research on the properties of alloys, through characterization and production of metal hydrides and PCM in collaboration with European laboratories and SMEs, to final application for hydrogen storage by ENGIE in Paris.
Our partner CNRS is glad to launch the French Hydrogen Research Federation. The launch event will take place online on 9th of March 2021, from 9 am to 12 am.
The FRH2 federation brings together more than 270 scientists who are experts in the hydrogen field and who work in cutting-edge CNRS laboratories with their academic and industrial partners. It positions the CNRS as an essential link in R&D to promote innovative multidisciplinary projects, the main objectives of which are to remove scientific barriers and propose technological breakthroughs.
The inaugural event of FRH2 is an opportunity to present to all the players in the sector, the teams and the research activities carried out in the large “energy” landscape of the CNRS.
On Thursday 21, January 2021, the HyCARE’s Project Meeting took place online. It has been an important meeting to define the next steps for starting the construction of the HyCARE’s full prototype. Although the COVID-pandemic has slowed down some activities, the project is proceeding well thanks to the great management of UniTo and the excellent collaboration among partners.
2021 will be a key year for HyCARE. Keep following us!
SHARPERstands for “SHAring Researchers’ Passions for Evidences and Resilience” . SHARPER is one of the 7 projects financed by the European Commission for organizing in Italy the Night of the Researchers in 2020.
SHARPER is taking place on the 27th of Novembre 2020 in the cities of Ancona, Cagliari, Camerino, Catania, L’Aquila, Macerata, Nuoro, Palermo, Pavia, Perugia, Terni, Torino e Trieste to share with citizens the passion, the challenges and the joy of being a researcher in Europe .
HyCARE is participating to the edition in Torino with three activities (Italian only):
The HyCARE consortium met online today (3rd of July 2020) to discuss about the state-of-the-art in the development of the HyCARE’s system. Although the COVID-19 has slowed down the activities, the Consortium has made very good progress in the investigation of the expansion behavior of the hydride pellets and in the optimization of the heat exchange and planning of the control strategy.
