Disruptive Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Products

Collaborating with the Machine Design Laboratory and the Laboratory of Technology and Strength of Materials, UPATRAS leads Task 2.3, dedicated to exploring innovative insulation materials for liquid hydrogen storage tanks. The goal is to seamlessly integrate sustainable design and engineering principles into the design process, drawing on cumulative expertise and insights from aeronautical projects like Clean Aviation. This cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary approach aims to propel advancements in marine hydrogen storage technologies. Additionally, the task involves defining criteria—technological, environmental, economic, and circular economy—for assessing the sustainability of proposed materials through dedicated assessment tools. These tools will play a crucial role in making informed material choices during the initial design phase of liquid hydrogen tanks and similar structures.
