Additional Information

Book Details


The fields covered by the hydrogen energy topic have grown rapidly, and now it has become clearly multidisciplinary. In addition to production, hydrogen purification and especially storage are key challenges that could limit the use of hydrogen fuel. In this book, the purification of hydrogen with membrane technology and its storage in "solid" form using new hydrides and carbon materials are addressed. Other novelties of this volume include the power conditioning of water electrolyzers, the integration in the electric grid of renewable hydrogen systems and the future role of microreactors and micro-process engineering in hydrogen technology as well as the potential of computational fluid dynamics to hydrogen equipment design and the assessment of safety issues. Finally, and being aware that transportation will likely constitute the first commercial application of hydrogen fuel, two chapters are devoted to the recent advances in hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines for transport vehicles.

"...provides very good insights into the recent research activities in the areas of renewable hydrogen production...delivers a brief review of hydrogen purification and storage technologies as well as hydrogen usage in fuel cells and internal combustion engines." --Energy Technology, November 2014

"Editors Gandía, Arzamendi, and Díeguez …offer this collection on the chemistry, physics, and technology of hydrogen fuel. Aimed at researchers, industry professionals, and students of environmental science, the book focuses on renewable feedstocks including photocatalysis and biomass, as well as purification and storage challenges that must be met before hydrogen can be used for a large portion of our energy needs." --Reference and Research Book News, December 2013
