IOM3: Aluminium scrap becomes carrier for hydrogen energy
Found Energy oxidises aluminium with water, converting its stored energy to heat and hydrogen. The technology is reported to work with low-quality, contaminated aluminium waste.
Co-Founder of the firm, Gadi Ruschin, says, “In practice, we transport aluminium and oxidise it very quickly (high-power density) in an aqueous environment where hydrogen is needed. This allows us to transport aluminium instead of hydrogen, which is safe, simple and the energy density is 10 times higher than liquid hydrogen.”
