The aerospace company will research advanced solutions in materials and manufacturing processes for large pressurized hydrogen storage tanks (up to 700 bar) that meet the technical-economic and environmental requirements for use in transportation, distribution and service.
The ValorH2 project aims to investigate the processes of generation, compression, storage, transport and use of green hydrogen to increase its efficiency, reduce the economic cost and minimize the carbon footprint. In addition, it will strengthen the technological capacity of the consortium members, which will contribute to position Spain as a leading country in the movement against climate change, facilitating decarbonization and energy independence.
Aciturri will specifically address:
· The design of type IV tanks with gravimetric efficiency (above 7%) for H2 transportation.
· The design of intermodal H2 transport and distribution modules based on type IV tanks for dispensing up to 1,000 kg/day per module.
· The analysis of stationary composite storage alternatives for dispensing up to 1,000 kg/day per tank.
· The reduction of tank costs, through the incorporation of the project's research.
ValorH2 project is supported by the Center for Technological Development and Innovation (CDTI), under the Ministry of Science and Innovation, which has granted 4.6 million euros to the project in the 2022 Missions call, from the European "Next Generation EU" funds within the Recovery and Resilience Mechanism.
The project consortium, led by Hiperbaric, is also composed of Adisseo, Ariema, Desmasa, DGH and MTorres. In addition, and we have the support of thirteen (13) Public Research Organizations (PROs) among technological centers and reference universities, and other specialized technical collaborations. These organizations are:Universidad de Burgos (UBU), Centro Tecnológico de Miranda de Ebro (CTME), Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial (INTA), Fundación AITIIP, Tecnalia, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), Fundación CIDAUT, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Universidad de Salamanca (USAL), Centro Tecnológico CEIT, Fundación para la Investigación, Desarrollo y Aplicación de Materiales Compuestos (FIDAMC), Asociación de Investigación y Cooperación Industrial de Andalucía (AICIA) and Instituto Tecnológico del Plástico (AIMPLAS).
