Abstract

One of the objectives of the French project PLUSPAC (Local Production and hydrogen Storage Unit for an optimisation of Fuel Cell stationary systems), coordinated by the Energy Research Centre of Veolia Environment is to evaluate the performances of hydrogen storage in metal hydrides for the energetic optimisation of a stationary fuel cell system. INERIS was in charge to assess the safety of metal hydrides as a storage mean. As very few information is available regarding the safety of intermetallic compounds developed within PLUSPAC project, experimental tests have been performed so as to get information about the reactivity of the powder (reaction with air, with water, thermal decomposition). Tests have been performed on activated (15 and 30 cycles) and no activated powders, and also on an other intermetallic compound, which is supposed to be reactive. Nevertheless, none of the tests have shown any adverse reaction, neither with air, nor with water, nor when exposed to high temperatures. Today, it appears that metal hydrides tested have a safe behaviour when exposed to air, water and high temperatures. Further tests would be necessary to investigate other materials.
