SDE3 was retained to provide design and scale-up of a process for safe hydrogen storage and retrieval hydrogen via manipulation of a proprietary liquid media based on nano-tech, self-assembling molecules. Applications for the technology included automotive fuel, off-peak electrical energy storage, and bulk storage of hydrogen. SDE3 investigated the feasibility and economics of the process scale-up. SDE3 developed a detailed fluidized bed reactor simulation and preliminary design of hydrogenation and dehydrogenation commercial-scale systems. SDE3 also developed a commercial synthetic procedure to produce the self-assembling molecule in bulk quantity.
