National Center for Manufacturing Science Research

The purpose of this project is to provide funding to Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) in support of the National Center for Manufacturing Sciences research project for hydrogen storage manufacturing. This project is designed to conduct research to identify, develop and demonstrate key manufacturing methods and processes, including quality assurance and testing methods, which will enable commercial rate production of vehicle-scale and bulk transport-scale composite high-pressure hydrogen storage cylinders at pressures up to 10,000 psi, with definition of path to achieve 15,000 psi cylinders.
