Methane hydrate in carbon nanopores as a potential means for energy storage (2004–2008)

Abstract:
This project deals with the innovative means to store methane (natural gas) in the form of methane hydrate in the nanospace of carbon pores. The significance of this project lies in the enhanced storage of methane at a moderate pressure compared to the compressed natural gas technology. Expected outcome is the better and efficient utilization of natural gas in transportation industries and the better understanding of the formation of methane hydrate in carbon nanopores.
