Overview

An exploration of current and possible future hydrogen storage technologies, written from an industrial perspective. The book describes the fundamentals, taking into consideration environmental, economic and safety aspects, as well as presenting infrastructure requirements, with a special focus on hydrogen applications in production, transportation, military, stationary and mobile storage.

A comparison of the different storage technologies is also included, ranging from storage of pure hydrogen in different states, via chemical storage right up to new materials already under development. Throughout, emphasis is placed on those technologies with the potential for commercialization.

    Wells's Mansion

    Big. Indestructible. There is a library filled with every Pokemon book. There is an indoor pool and jacuzzi. There is a room for battling other trainers. There is a training room to train himself and his Pokemon. His Pokemon roam around freely. The technology is 100 years in the future. There is a garden filled with every berry. The mansion has very high security. There are land mines all around the mansion. There is also a force field that zaps 800,000,000,000 million volts of electricity. There are also anti-aircraft missiles placed all around the house. Any fu<_>cken idiot that trespasses will find an anti-aircraft missle rocketing at their faces and a land mine blowing them off their feet.
