Quantum Fuel Systems has announced that the U. S. Department of Energy has selected their project to develop next-generation hydrogen storage tanks with partner Boeing. Their target is to manufacture hydrogen storage tanks from composite materials that can withstand high pressure but, and here's an idea, remain affordable.

Quantum has expertise in hydrogen systems and storage devices, while Boeing has a long-time tradition of working with composite manufacturing technologies for the aerospace industry. Their goal is a high speed composite processing technique that is cheap enough for mass production. Should they figure such a process out, it will be validated by the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
