AbstractThe development of a composite tank, which is therefore lightweight and ensures that liquid hydrogen is kept in temperature for a period compatible with heavy mobility, is a breakthrough innovation, which frees up the replacement of fossil fuels by liquid hydrogen. The development of this tank passes the development of an aluminum-based coating, with a function of sealing barrier, to apply the inner wall of the tank, in contact with the liquid H2.
