The kick-off meeting for the “Trends and Design Factors for Hydrogen Pressure Vessels” project, recently held at AZL Aachen GmbH, was a successful event, bringing together more than 37 top experts in the field of composite technologies. This event laid a solid foundation for the Joint Partner Project, which currently comprises a consortium of 20 renowned companies from across the composite pressure vessel value chain.
AZLAachen GmbH, a recognized innovator in lightweight technologies research and industry collaboration, announces the initiation of a new project titled “Trends and Design Factors for Hydrogen Pressure Vessels”. Resulting from in-depth discussions at the recent AZL Annual Partner Meeting, the project aims to address industry needs surrounding hydrogen storage, a critical component in the energy transition and decarbonization efforts.
As batteries for electric vehicles become more performant, higher volumetric energy density plays a crucial role. If more energy is to be stored in less installation space, new material and design solutions are required. The development of suitable enclosures made of safe and highly robust lightweight materials is also required. This is a case for the Aachen Centre for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL). A project on cell-to-pack battery enclosures for battery-electric vehicles, which has been eagerly awaited in the industry, will start in October this year there.
