Hydrogen is the ideal energy source. It is also easy to produce using renewable energy and is available in large quantities. No pollutants result from it being burned.
Building on this, H2-Industries developed a solution that revolutionises the electricity market. The innovative LOHC storage technology makes it completely safe to handle hydrogen as an energy source. Large quantities of hydrogen can now be stored, transported and re-used without risk.
The LOHC technology is based on liquid organic hydrogen carriers, an organic oil-like substance that binds hydrogen chemically. Various substances would be suitable for this; H2-Industries uses dibenzyltoluene, whose physicochemical properties are very similar to diesel. The chemical storage of hydrogen in the LOHC makes it possible to store it under ambient pressure (p = 1 bar) and at a normal temperature (T = 20 °C). Another advantage is that the stored hydrogen is not volatile and, therefore, it cannot self-discharge. The LOHC can be charged and discharged with hydrogen as often as needed.
