Decarbonization is a crucial step towards climate control with one emerging renewable energy being hydrogen power. To generate electricity from hydrogen, hydrogen is refined to its liquid state and then converted into electricity through a chemical process, leaving water as the only byproduct. Since hydrogen in liquid state is at cryogenic temperature (i.e. -253 ˚C), a liquid hydrogen storage vessel must be heavily insulated to avoid boil-off. For my senior project, I am investigating the insulating properties of aerogels in their granular and blanket forms. The goal is to see what effect aerogels have in reducing the boil-off rate for liquid hydrogen storage tanks. Aerogels are the world’s lightest solids and have an extremely low thermal conductivity, making them a fantastic insulating material. Experimental trials were run on an 27-oz 18/8 stainless steel vessel containing liquid nitrogen, which was used instead of liquid hydrogen due cost and safety issues. Different aerogel configurations were tested, varying the granular aerogel thickness and adding a thermal aerogel blanket to see how they reduce the boil-off rate of the liquid nitrogen. The results showcase the great insulative properties of aerogels in different forms. A null insulative trial shows just over 1 hour for the liquid nitrogen to completely evaporate. The most heavily insulated case, with an 18.3mm granular aerogel boundary and an 8mm thermal aerogel blanket, was able to increase the boil-off time to over 5 hours.
