HySiLabs developed an innovative solution to facilitate hydrogen (H2) transportation, by charging and releasing hydrogen in a unique liquid carrier (HydroSil). HySiLabs’ breakthrough innovation has the potential to remove all barriers hindering the deployment of hydrogen solutions by tackling safety, regulations and supply chain issues.
Hydrogen is a promising, clean alternative to fossil fuels. However, it is naturally a gas, making it difficult to transport and to store. It must either be pressurised or liquefied at very low temperatures, both methods are dangerous and expensive.
Hydrosyl is a liquid hydrogen carrier that allows on demand and on-site hydrogen production. It can be carried everywhere without any specific restrictions and stored for long periods of time, just like conventional fuel. Furthermore, due to its high density, one truck load of HydroSil transports seven times more hydrogen than by high pressure transportation, which reduces the operating expenses (opex) for transportation and the emissions related to hydrogen transportation.
• Possibility to produce onsite, on-demand.
• Reduction of opex for transportation of hydrogen.
• Safe transportation and storage (non-explosive and non-toxic).
