Efficient hydrogen storage by adsorption with new metal-organic frameworks (MOST-H2)

MOST-H2 develops, validates, and demonstrates innovative hydrogen storage technologies using monolithic metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as adsorbents. The high-performance MOFs are cost-efficient and optimised for hydrogen bonding. In doing so, they have a very small environmental footprint.

The main goal of the project is to computationally design, synthesise and experimentally validate the ultra-porous MOF-based H2 adsorbents. This is an essential step towards future-proof solutions for hydrogen storage compared to conventional technologies. An important part of the project is the development and upscaling of MOF materials that allow easy integration into a cryo-adsorption storage system specifically designed for this purpose. The MOST-H2 technology forms the basis for the development of future plans for market penetration and will thus contribute significantly to a green, sustainable, and circular hydrogen economy.
