US-based producer and supplier of industrial gases used in industrial applications, Air Products & Chemicals Inc. and Japan Metals & Chemicals Co. agreed recently to jointly develop a programme for hydrogen storage systems that use metal hydride alloys for fuel cell markets. Financial terms were not disclosed. In a recent press release, the companies said a metal hydride is a metal alloy system capable of absorbing and storing hydrogen at moderate pressures near room temperature. The stored hydrogen may be released as required to provide power for a wide variety of fuel cell applications, the companies said. Storage of hydrogen at moderate pressure and ambient temperature is a more energy-efficient and cost-effective method for these applications than current techniques for storing hydrogen, Air Products said.
