Production, Storage and Valorisation of Hhydrogen Energy (PSVHE)

Energy accessed through Hydrogen can be considered as a great and readily available source with a great efficiency with no emissions when used in fuel cells or in internal combustion engines to generate power, no green house effect, non-toxic, can be produced from renewable resources, etc. Various applications based on different aspects of energy through Hydrogen such as production, valorization and storage are the main objectives. (The CFP on the journal website)
Extended versions of selected papers will be publishable in International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (Elsevier)
