Hydrogen Transport and Storage

The challenge

Hydrogen is a gas with extremely low density and high storage densities are difficult to achieve. At ambient conditions it takes 11 cubic meter to store 1 kilogram of hydrogen. Conventional hydrogen storage only works under very high pressures (compressed hydrogen: 700+ bars) or very low temperatures (liquefied hydrogen: – 253 °C). This generates additional risks and requires energy intensive compression and liquefaction procedures.

The Solution

Hydrogenious Technologies developed the breakthrough in hydrogen storage. The safe and efficient storage of hydrogen in Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC). LOHC can be stored and transported under ambient conditions in the existing fuel infrastructure without the need for high pressures or low temperatures. One cubic meter of LOHC can store more than 600 cubic meters of hydrogen gas.

About us

Company details

Founded in 2013, Hydrogenious Technologies is a spin-off of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg by its CEO Dr. Daniel Teichmann and the three co-founders Prof. Wolfgang Arlt, Prof. Peter Wasserscheid and Prof. Eberhardt Schlücker.

The need for safe and efficient hydrogen storage for multi-MWh energy storage systems was imminent – and Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC) proved to be the solution. Having completed the technological proof of concept at the university’s laboratories, the idea became reality and Hydrogenious Technologies, a global pioneer in LOHC based energy storage, was born.

With the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg becoming a shareholder in May 2014 and the successful close of a Series A funding round in July 2014 with Anglo American Platinum as investor, Hydrogenious Technologies is now backed with strong scientific, strategic and financial capacities to revolutionize large-scale energy and hydrogen storage.
