Hiden Isochema at Le Mans!
This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race featured a Hydrogen Village, including 5 hydrogen-powered cars from GreenGT, Alpine, Solution F, Bosch Engineering & Ligier Automotive, and Toyota.
In the Hydrogen Village, the MOST-H2 Horizon Europe project, of which Hiden Isochema is an associated partner, was presented by Professor Karim Adil from Le Mans University in France and PhD students Achraf Delhali and Abdessamad El-Amri from Mohammed VI Polytechnic University in Morocco.
MOST-H2 aims to develop a hydrogen storage tank filled with a metal-organic framework (MOF) material able to adsorb large quantities of H2 for use as a fuel. Hiden Isochema’s role in the project, alongside 15 other partners from 8 countries, is to provide expertise in characterizing the high pressure H2 adsorption properties of candidate materials.
