Driving Green Transport

From car batteries to hydrogen fuelled planes, many of the technologies that can help us achieve green transport provide new challenges for materials engineers. 

Rechargeable batteries rely on lithium, but our supply of this resource is set to fall short of demand for the first time by 2030.  

Meanwhile, the storage of liquid hydrogen as a fuel source for aeroplanes also provides challenges due to the temperatures and pressures involved in flight.  

Bristol Composites Institute is working on solutions in partnership with industry, taking research from the fundamental to applied implementation.  

Innovative research to meet the growing demand for green transport that will power us towards a net zero future.
