Abstract:

This report details and investigation into the feasibility of thermal decomposition non-hydrolytic of aluminum hydride AlH3 for hydrogen production. A unique new process, referred to as the self-sustaining SS reaction, was developed, along with a prototype generator and cartridges of AlH3 for use in the generator. Tests performed indicate repeatable, rapid hydrogen production and a safe reaction. Issues of controllability are addressed for future work.
