August 21st, 2023

R&D Focus Areas:
Hydrides, Energy systems integration

Lead Organisation:
Curtin University

Future Energy Exports CRC


Start date:
May 2022

Project summary description:
The aim of this PhD project is to investigate new methods of regenerating NaBH4 after undergoing hydrolysis or methanolysis. Another aim is to use NaBH4 hydrolysis as a chemical hydrogen compression method to reach pressures suitable for refuelling hydrogen vehicles.
