Safe, low-cost hydrogen storage material

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2011

Cella Energy Ltd has developed a unique material; it looks and feels like a plastic but stores a litre of hydrogen in each gram.

Cella and its automotive and aerospace partners are developing products to use the material for use in any application that requires portable power, including: vehicles, aircraft and consumer electronics. It is lighter than a lithium ion battery, and cleaner than gasoline.
