Dr. Dematteis is awarded as best presentation on Advanced Materials for Energy Storage @ New Times Conference

Erika Michela Dematteis has been awarded of the “Menzione d’onore” at the New times Conference. Her presentation of “TiFe-substituted intermetallic for large-scale stationary hydrogen storage” was awarded as best communication in the session on Advance Materials for Energy Storage. @HyCARE, Erika and our female researchers rock!

HyCARE is contributing to create the national hub for hydrogen in Italy

The Italian newspaper “La Repubblica” reports the HyCARE project as a key initiative triggering to the new partnerships on hydrogen research in Turin. Building up on the experience and competences gained in Hycare, the research groups of the University of Turin joined the Politecnico of Turin in a formal partnership on hydrogen research. The goal of the partnership is to boost R&D excellence and advance application of hydrogen technologies in the Turin and Piedmont territory. The future ambition of the partnership is to give rise to the National Research Hub on Hydrogen.

HyCARE article in Materials Advances is a Popular Advance

The HyCARE article on ” Substitutional effects in TiFe for hydrogen storage: a comprehensive review” has been quoted ad the most read article in Materials Advances. Our HyCARE researchers are committed to open science and are doing their best to share the research result with all the scientific community. Our ambition is to contribute in growing research on metal alloys as a sustainable option for hydrogen storage.

Dr. De Matteis presents her results on TiFe- substituted intermetallic at New Times Conference

HyCARE’s researcher Erika De Matteis presented her research on “TiFe- substituted intermetallic for large-scale stationary hydrogen storage at the international conference “New Times – New Trends in Materials Science and Engineering 1st International Virtual Conference“. This virtual meeting aimed at providing a forum on new trends on materials science and engineering from the Italian community and beyond. The scope was to gather engineers, physicists, chemists and materials scientists working on innovative materials and their applications.

HyCARE at 5th Hydrogen Technologies Congress

Dr. De Matteis has presented her HyCARE’s research activities on the optimal alloy composition for the HyCARE system. Her presentation on “Fundamental hydrogen storage properties of TiFe-alloy with partial substitution of Fe by Ti and Mn” provided an overview of the main results of the experimental activities conducted in collaboration with CNRS and HEREON.

Webinar Master Course Autonoma University Madrid

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.

Substitutional effects in TiFe for hydrogen storage: a comprehensive review

HyCARE’s second publication has been officially released on the Journal “Materials Advaces”. This work aims to provide a comprehensive review of publications involving chemical substitution in TiFe-based compounds for guiding compound design and materials selection in current and future hydrogen storage applications.

The paper is the result of almost 2-year work, collecting, reading and reviewing literature on TiFe and its elemental substitutions. Congratulations to our research Erika De Matteis for her excellent and passionate work.

The publication is available in open access at: https://doi.org/10.1039/D1MA00101A

Stocker l’hydrogène dans des matériauz: du laboratoire à l’application

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.

Renewable energy: the golden age of hydrogen

Green, blue, grey: the colors of hydrogen for building the energy transition in Europe. Hydrogen plays a key role in the decarbonization strategies of Germany, France, the Netherland, and Portugal. The 2050 scenarios of the International Renewable Energy Agency forecast that 6% of energy consumption will be related to green hydrogen.

The article (Italian) by Maurizio Bongioanni on Renewable Matter describes the perspectives and challenges for the development of the hydrogen value chain in Italy and Europe. Prof. Baricco presents HyCARE as an innovative storage technology for building the energy transition based on hydrogen. The use of metal hydrides and phase changing materials can makes HyCARE a suitable and sustainable technology for mid-size stationary storage of renewables.
