HTP were asked to develop a website for a pioneering new large-scale H2 storage system with the potential to overcome current storage issues and transform the transition to next zero.
HyDUS – Hydrogen Depleted Uranium Storage – is a collaborative project being undertaken by the University of Bristol, EDFX UK, the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and Urenco. It is being funded by a £7.7m research award from the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero.
We developed a site that simplified a great deal of technical data but still told a clear story that highlights H2’s green energy potential, its current storage issues and how HyDUS overcomes these by an innovative use of depleted uranium, a waste product of the nuclear industry that has been around for years.
The site has built-in scope for the addition of more technical material as the HyDUS project proceeds, the results of a pilot-scale demonstrator under construction, educational material, forums, evidence of sustainability and forthcoming events at which HyDUS will be featured.
International interest in the project is building up ahead of a major conference that HyDUS will be attending, Hydrogen Gateway at the Wales ICC in June 2023.
