Le Dr. Bob BOWMAN, CEO of RCB Hydrides, LLC donnera deux séminaires virtuels :

Le 6 décembre 2023 à 16h intitulé :

Fifty years of Metal Hydrides Evolution: these are not your grandparents hydrides

Abstract :

This lecture’s intent is to provide technology development history of the metal hydrides through the 1970s and illustrate that these materials are still not obsolete for numerous energy  and other applications during the 2020s and beyond. This presentation will mainly address the general properties, behavior & applications of those metal-hydrogen systems that have been the focus of major R&D research activities since circa 1975.  The primary hydrides to be covered following general compositions: AHx (A = Pd, Li, U, Ti, Ca, Mg, Zr); ABx (ZrNiHx, TiFeHx); AB2 (Laves phase alloys, i.e., ZrV2Hx, TiCr2Hx, etc.): AB5 (LaNi5Hx based alloys & intermetallics); and the complex hydrides (Mg2NiHx, NaAlH4, Li-Mg-N-H, etc.). Here I will highlight the key concepts, status, and findings that have influenced directions and roles found from these prior metal hydrogen research efforts. In my second lecture planned for January 2024, I will delve into the properties and characterizations of those Metal-Hydrogen Systems being investigated during the 21st century for a range of diverse reversible storage and renewable energy applications.

et un second séminaire le 19 janvier 2024 à 16h intitulé :

Overview and characterization of Metal Hydrogen Systems for diverse hydrogen storage applications

Abstract :

The quest to mitigate the effects of climate change has significantly increased researsch to enable the use of hydrogen, as a clean, efficient energy vector for energy storage via metal hydrogen systems in renewable energy beyond the traditional roles of thses materials as highlighted in my previous lecture. Here, an overview will examine these candidates hydrogen storage materials, methods and techniques for characterization of their properties and performance in representative electrochemical and thermal storage systems. In order not to become excessively lengthy, examples of just highly investigated complex hydrides, intermetallic hydrides, and some binary hydrides are covered as electrochemical storage energy, thermal energy storage, hydrogen energy systems will be covered. A personal outlook will conclude on futur prospects and research focus for hydrogen-based energy storage.
