Due to their significantly increased energy densities, hydrogen fuel cells powered by hydrogen storage systems have become intriguing replacements for other energy storage systems, such as lithium ion batteries. In fact, several designs for hydrogen systems in vehicles utilizing pressurized hydrogen are currently utilized. Being high-pressure systems, safety concerns regarding the burst and ignition potential of the pressurized hydrogen tank have arisen, and there has been a motivation to create safer and more energy efficient hydrogen storage methods, such as the Li3N hydrogen storage system. However, even this system is susceptible to performance loss due to the nature of the surface of the fuel cells, which utilize proton-exchange membranes (PEMs) that are vulnerable to poisoning via reaction with NH3 generated from the Li3N system. This research seeks to develop techniques to mitigate impurity limitations for safer and more improved hydrogen fuel cells powered by appropriate hydrogen storage materials.
