Researchers studying more efficient alternative to CNG cylinders.
Scientists are developing new storage systems that may allow automotive engineers to build more cars that can operate more efficiently on gas-based fuels. Nanogas systems are built out of metal organic frameworks that can store more gas, such as methane, hydrogen or carbon dioxide, than empty cylinders. It may sound like science fiction x – a vessel that is larger on the inside than the outside – but MOFs are crystal-based solids with nanoscopic pores inside them that ...
