UT-Battelle, LLC, acting under its Prime Contract No. DE-AC05-00OR22725 with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the management and operation of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), is seeking a commercialization partner for a hydrogen storage container technology. The ORNL Technology Transfer Office will accept licensing applications through July 10, 2020.
Low-cost off-board bulk stationary storage of hydrogen is a critical part in the hydrogen infrastructure, which is well recognized in the DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Program Multi-Year Research Development and Demonstration Plan. Research towards low cost and reliable bulk stationary storage for high-pressure hydrogen is still evolving. This invention presents a design for stationary storage of high-pressure hydrogen. The safety and economic concerns are the main drivers for the proposed design. The key technical features of the conceptual design include: use of cost-effective commodity materials; novel vessel design to mitigate hydrogen embrittlement of materials; high-productivity and low-cost fabrication technologies; and embedded sensors to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the storage system.
This technology was originally developed using Department of Energy federal funds.
