R&D projects

McPhy is a leader in solid hydrogen storage and invests a significant portion of its revenues in R&D to continually improve its products both in terms of active materials (hydrides and addenda) as well as in terms of their implementation in various storage solutions. McPhy is a member of the Tenerrdis business cluster, and is committed to several projects as a direct partner or subcontractor.

European projects


ATLAS-H2 is an Industry-Academia Partnership on hydrogen storage in solid materials aiming to develop and test (in the short term) and bring to the market (in the medium to longer term) integrated advanced metal hydride tanks with high added value applications especially for stationary systems and hydrogen compression.

NESSHY aims at developing novel materials, storage methods and fabrication processes that provide the energy density and the charge/discharge, storage/restitution rates necessary for mobile applications with spin-offs in stationary systems. The final aim of the project is to identify the most promising solid storage solutions for such applications.

Other types of projects

Rhône-Alpes Energy Research Cluster "Connecting a hydrogen-fueled SOFC battery to a magnesium hydride tank"

The project objective is to develop a complete demonstrator including a large-scale magnesium hydride tank, a SOFC (1 to 5kW) fuel cell and a system for thermal energy recovery of heat generated by the SOFC fuel cell.
