Ammonia Storage
Hydrogen is often claimed to be the best alternative fuel for automotive purposes if not for the complications involving its safe and efficient storage. The technology developed by STFC, utilizes compounds having the general formula M1x(BH4)y(NH2(R2))n to safely and efficiently store and when required release hydrogen. This technology has multiple ...
