FCH2RAIL publishes review paper on hydrogen storage and refueling in the rail sector

The paper Review and comparison of worldwide hydrogen activities in the rail sector with special focus on onboard storage and refueling technologies investigates hydrogen storage and refueling technologies that were used in rail vehicles over the past 20 years. Details of the currently available technology and its vehicle integration are presented, from a total of 80 international studies. Corporate announcements as well as vehicle and refueling demonstration projects were evaluated with regard to storage and refueling technology, pressure level, hydrogen amount and installation concepts inside rolling stock. Furthermore, current hydrogen storage systems of worldwide manufacturers were analyzed in terms of technical data.
