Hydrogen obtained from dissociation of water with renewable energy, nuclear or the water-gas shift reaction in advanced gasification technologies provided with CO2 capture and sequestration, has been identified as one of the strategic technologies for an appealing, clean, abundant, safe and cost effective energy carrier for a low carbon economy.Implementing hydrogen as an environmentally friendly, sustainable and efficient energy carrier, however requires major challenges for its production, storage and use to be solved. Breakthroughs in materials research to find effective robust catalysts and new storage techniques that satisfy weight, volumetric, safety and cost requirements are critical for hydrogen to penetrate the market. Crucial is gaining a deeper understanding of the phenomena that govern the interactions of hydrogen with materials, to exploit the enormous opportunities offered by nanotechnology and to develop modelling and simulation strategies for predicting reaction pathways, materials properties and systems behaviours in order to effectively implement the hydrogen technology. Furthermore, hydrogen as an intermediate energy carrier for the CO2 reduction to synthetic hydrocarbons is increasingly important especially for mobile and seasonal storage of renewable energy.
“Hydrogen Production and Storage” will bring together world leading experts from Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Engineering to share up-to-date scientific and technical advances in the field, and to highlight outstanding problems and guidelines for future research. Fundamental aspects of catalysis, separation and purification processes; chemistry and physics of hydrogen bonding, adsorption and release mechanisms; materials synthesis, processing and characterisation; system implementation and performance evaluation including safety and economics issues will be featured.
