The approach they are taking is to convert the hydrogen into a compound that can easily be stored, transported and then used as fuel. They have developed a technique to combine aluminum and hydrogen to produce Alane (AlH3) at relatively low pressure and temperature and then extract the hydrogen at temperatures less than 100C. Alane should be able to store more than nine percent hydrogen by weight. McGrady and his colleagues will be presenting their findings at the meeting of the American Physical Society this week.
