Steinbeis Europa Zentrum is partner in the project MOSTH2Solution for efficient storage of hydrogen

27. Juli 2022

Widespread use of hydrogen as an energy carrier is a key priority for the EU in order to achieve its climate and en­ergy transition targets. The EU funded project MOST-H2: “Novel metal-organic framework adsorbents for efficient storage of hydrogen” is therefore developing an innova­tive concept for hydrogen storage, from the laboratory to the tank. With a budget of appr. 6 million euros over 48 months, the project focuses on research and innovation to find the best storage solutions. On July 4th, 2022, the project had its official Kick-Off meeting.

MOST-H2 in a nutshell

MOST-H2 consists of a laboratory-to-tank approach to develop, validate and demonstrate innovative low-cost hydrogen storage technologies using cost-efficient monolithic Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) adsorbents, with an optimal combination of volumetric and gravimetric capacity, but also a low environmental footprint. New, sustainable high-performance MOFs are produced through the combination of advanced synthesis strategies and sophisticated computational techniques.

The main objective is to computationally design, synthesise and experimentally validate new ultra-porous MOF based hydrogen adsorbents. This represents an essential step towards more efficient, inherently safer and cost-effective hydrogen storage solutions compared to conventional technologies. An important part of the project is devoted to developing and upscaling monolithic forms of optimal MOF materials to allow easy integration into a cryo-adsorption storage tank, specifically designed for this purpose.

With the MOST-H2 technology forming the basis for elaborating future market penetration plans, the project will contribute considerably to a green, sustainable and circular hydrogen economy.

Steinbeis Europa Zentrum supports as a project partner: Communication and dissemination of project results, co-definition of research and market needs, management of intellectual property rights and technology transfer, exploitation, replication and business models.

MOST-H2 gathers 16 partners from Greece, the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, Italy and Morocco working together since 1st June 2022 until 31st May 2026:
