    Offering a wide-range coverage, this book provides fundamentals as well as the applied science and technology involved in the whole hydrogen value chain, including production, storage, transportation, and utilization. It discusses some challenges and opportunities for hydrogen to address energy demand and climate change issues.

    • Discusses various technology pathways for manufacturing/producing hydrogen both directly, i.e., water splitting, and indirectly, i.e., gas, coal, and biomass.
    • Covers techniques and technologies for transporting gaseous, liquid, solid, and other forms of hydrogen, including mobile and stationary modes as well as small- and large-scale forms of transportation.
    • Offers techniques and technologies for storing hydrogen with emphasis on materials and physical and chemical characteristics.
    • Describes hydrogen utilization in energy/energy conversion, industrial chemical, industrial agricultural, and transportation sectors.

    This book is aimed at engineers and scientists working in the disciplines of Energy, Chemical, Environmental, Petroleum, Petrochemical, and Mechanical Engineering.
