Israeli-based Venture Developing 600 km Hydrogen Tank for Cars
An Israeli-Russian-German venture, C.En, headed by Prof. Dan Eliezer, has recently completed a design and test program that aims at producing a safe and lightweight hydrogen tank for use in cars.
One of the biggest technological and economic challenges delaying the development of cars operated by hydrogen is the problem of safe and lightweight storage of hydrogen in the vehicle. C.En conducted more than 120 experiments over three years, which demonstrate that it is viable to store twice the amount of hydrogen than current solutions, providing a 600-km range with a 60-liter tank that weighs 50 kg, including the hydrogen.
C.En's hydrogen tank is undergoing another series of tests and experiments at the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), after which it will be presented to the US authorities and international carmakers. C.En has written five patents on the basis of the first set of tests.
