Hydrogen Gas - Carbon Microsphere and Graphene Oxide Adsorption/Desorption Analysis for solid state hydrogen storage

Climate Change (CC) mitigation and reduction requires a strong effort to develop and put into use clean energy options that significantly reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions. In Canada, the transportation sector accounts for 25% of all emissions. Hydrogen fueled vehicles is one option that has a great potential to reduce Canadian and global CO2 fuel emissions. This research project investigates methods to analyse required traits of storage materials, including surface area and pore volume, to develop methods and materials to increase hydrogen gas storage capacity to ensure the successful transition for decarbonization in the transportation sector.
