HYDROGEN STORAGE DEVICES FOR AUTOMOBILES

Three hydrogen storage devices are discussed. The first two, a cryogenic container (Dewar) of liquid hydrogen (LH sub 2 ) and a pressure vessel filled with metal hydride (reservoir), have been successfully demonstrated in working vehicles; whereas the third is a low-pressure container of glass microballoons containing highly pressurized hydrogen and is still in the conceptual stage. Each of these devices supplies hydrogen to an internal-combustion engine (ICE) modified for hydrogen service.
