Purdue University researchers report a breakthrough as they complete work on a crucial cooling component for an experimental hydrogen-storage system for vehicles. Issam Mudawar, Purdue University professor of mechanical engineering, says the system uses a fine metal powder to absorb hydrogen gas under high pressure. Once the powder absorbs the hydrogen, it becomes a metal hydride, a process known as hydriding. By decreasing the pressure in the vessel or warming the metal hydride, the ...
