Making hydrogen storage safer and cleaner
Share this story

As Canada transitions from fossil fuels to cleaner energy sources, new technology will be needed to measure, test and sense these new energy sources. Researchers at the University of Windsor are helping address this need by developing sensing equipment that will enhance how hydrogen gas, a clean energy source, is stored and transported.  

Using their high-resolution detection method, chemistry professors Marcus Drover, Simon Rondeau-Gagné and Bulent Mutus are finding a way to manage the risks associated with storing and distributing hydrogen. The researchers will partner with Wilson Analytical Services to test, and eventually commercialize, the sensing equipment, helping Ontario become a leader in clean energy.

“This project will lead to new materials and devices that will accelerate economic recovery, expanding low-carbon fuel production opportunities and providing opportunities for communities and businesses nationwide, cementing Canada’s position as a world-leader in safe dihydrogen technology.”
