  • Publication number: 20100061926
    Abstract: Auxiliary heating systems that can supply heat to a hydrogen storage material, which may comprise at least one hydridable material, located inside a hydrogen storage tank have been developed. These auxiliary heating systems involve the catalytic combustion of hydrogen and oxygen in a catalytic heater to produce heat and combustion products. The heat produced from the catalytic combustion may then be transferred, either indirectly or directly, to the hydrogen storage material to stimulate the release of additional desorbable hydrogen that may be stored in the at least one hydrdidable material.
