Nanomix Gains Two Patents in Hydrogen Storage

California [] Nanomix, a nanotechnology company commercializing a line of nanoelectronic sensors for industrial and biomedical applications, has been issued two new U.S. patents related to hydrogen storage technology. The new technology avoids the current limitations of liquid hydrogen storage. Using novel nano-materials, Nanomix claims its technology advances hydrogen storage systems to meet the performance needs of automotive and portable electronic applications. These are the fourth and fifth patents in a group of patents comprising the Nanomix hydrogen storage portfolio. The patent describes the storage of hydrogen using novel nanostructured materials that permit non-chemically-bound low-pressure storage of hydrogen. The system employs a combination of thermal insulation and an enclosure for the storage and controlled distribution of hydrogen as a high-energy fuel.
