CAVHYTATION is a research project, which is a continuation of the VHYCTOR project that aims at bringing out a new concept of hydrogen service station for mobility. The idea is to compress hydrogen at high pressure at industrial production sites, and to transport this energy vector for distribution to service stations. This will be based on:

  • fundamental research on the materials constituting the compressed hydrogen tanks useful for its transport but also for its storage at the level of individual distribution stations,
  • the design and implementation of an innovative vibratory energy recovery device to supply monitoring systems useful for monitoring the integrity of compressed hydrogen tanks,
  • the development of an innovative robust mechanism for the mechanical detection of traces of dihydrogen.

The project is held by FEMTO-ST (F Thiebaud, F Amiot and N Kacem and is supported by the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region and the National Research Agency (ANR):

One Ph.D student has been recruited for this project.

One Post-Doc position is open. To apply please see the contact person in the link above.
