These are the fourth and fifth patents issued (US No. 6,986,258 issued January 17, 2006 and US No. 6,991,773 issued January 31, 2006) in a group of patents comprising the Nanomix hydrogen storage portfolio. The patent describes the storage of hydrogen using novel nanostructured materials that permit non-chemically-bound low-pressure storage of hydrogen. The system employs a combination of thermal insulation and an enclosure for the storage and controlled distribution of hydrogen as a high-energy fuel. This can address storage life limitations, energy penalties, and/or weight penalties associated with liquid hydrogen, metallic hydride and high-pressure gas-phase hydrogen storage.
