The synthesis of zeolites and carbon derivatives from fly ash for hydrogen storage purposes.

The synthesis of zeolites and carbon derivatives from fly ash for hydrogen storage purposes.

Implementation period: 2016-04-01 - 2019-12-31

Type: International

Division: The Division of Applied Geochemistry and Environmental Engineering

The project focuses on the synthesis of zeolite structures, including, among others, the ZSM-5 type structures from fly ash obtained from bituminous coal. The resulting zeolites will be characterized using XRD, SEM-EDS, and XRF methods. The current research is aimed at the extraction and characterization of carbonaceous materials from fly ashes and hydrogen storage tests with use of the obtained products. The project is implemented by partners of the MEERI PAS: The Lublin University of Technology and the Hydrogen South Africa Infrastructure CoC, Materials Science and Manufacturing, Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, South Africa.
