Gas Storage Method can Help Next-Generation Clean Energy Vehicles

The storage of hydrogen and methane can help next-generation clean energy vehicles.
These gases are attractive clean energy alternatives to carbon dioxide-producing fossil fuels.

Gas Storage Method can Help Next-Generation Clean Energy Vehicles

Researchers at Northwestern University have designed and synthesized new materials with ultra-high porosity and surface area for the storage of hydrogen and methane for fuel cell-powered vehicles. 
The gas storage method can help next-generation clean energy vehicles. 

Huge amounts of hydrogen and methane can be stored in nanoscopic holes. The designer material, a type of metal-organic framework (MOF), can store more hydrogen and methane than conventional adsorbent materials at much higher pressures and much lower costs. These gases are attractive clean energy alternatives to carbon dioxide-fossil fuels.
