WELCOME TO HYDROGEN STORAGE SYSTEMS LABORATORY

To realize the Hydrogen Economy,
Our laboratory is investigating highly efficient and
safe methods of hydrogen storage and transportation.


Hydrogen is gas at ambient temperature and pressure. The volume energy density of hydrogen gas is only 1/3000 of gasoline, therefore, to store and transport hydrogen in a limited space is a critical issue to be solved before realization of the hydrogen economy. Hydrogen storage materials provide compact, energy efficient, safe and affordable method of hydrogen storage and transport.
Our Laboratory investigates hydrogen storage materials and pursues to develop novel materials, which are indispensable to realize the hydrogen economy.

 APPROARCH

● Investigate mechanism of hydrogen absorption
   using neutrons, various microscopes, Raman spectrum and so on

●Based on scientific understanding, novel materials are created
   to be applicable for hydrogen storage/transportation

●Engineering of the materials is also developed
   in collaboration with industry

●Through international network, creative research is carride out
   We promote active exchanges with talented scientists from abroad
   as well as in Japan
