Solid hydrogen storage

MAHYTEC offers a wide range of hydrogen solid storage solutions. The implemented technology relies on the use of hydrides, a metallic powder which absorbs and stores significant hydrogen quantity at low pressure and room temperature. Thanks to our complete control of the process of induction heating, we guaranty on-demand solutions as well as materials quality. Single unit or assembled, our storage solutions can satisfy all needs for most of the possible applications.

 Thanks to the control of the induction melting process, we secure a solution used to the needs as well as the quality of the material. Alone or assembled, our storage solutions can satisfy all your needs.

Application: SBB Minibar
In 2013, the integrator CEKA on behalf of the Swiss company ELVETINO, which handles the trolleys of the Swiss railway company SBB, finds in MAHYTEC the reliable interlocutor to develop a H2 storage solution able to meet the challenge: increase the energy autonomy for a minibar available during the whole trip.
The H2 version of these minibars was implemented in April 2014 and has eliminated the autonomy and power issue of the original system with batteries.
