Safe, low-cost hydrogen storage
Cella Energy is an 'Advanced Materials and Technologies' sector company with first-mover advantage in safe, low-cost hydrogen storage technology. Cella's goal is to produce a new source of transport fuel that is commercial, competitive, available at scale – and does not require a whole new infrastructure. Near term Cella is producing military power solutions for unmanned systems with 3x the duration of lithium-ion batteries, and radiation shielding materials for space satellites. Cella is also working to develop longer lasting power solutions for portable electronics products such as laptop computers.
Cella's solutions are strategically important and two of the largest shareholders are US Government and UK Government agencies. Cella is located near Oxford, UK and at the NASA Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, USA.

Zero-emission hydrogen vehicles – hydrogen vehicles no longer require pressurized hydrogen tanks. Cella hydrogen storage materials are packaged in regular shaped vehicle fuel tanks. Refuelling takes placing use small pellets or beads that together behave just like a liquid fuel such as gasoline or diesel, and can be pumped using similar liquid pumps.
Military power supplies – For military and portable power applications the hydrogen can be packaged in small cartridges or bags that can replace a battery pack or be packaged into an unmanned aerial vehicle UAV for example. The duration can be up to 3x lithium –ion batteries for the same weight. No high pressures or water activation is required.
Radiation Shielding – Cella provides the most effective radiation shielding materials for unmanned space satellites and to protect astronauts on long term space flight. The high hydrogen content materials can extend the operational life of unmanned satellites substantially. Cella's materials allow standard COTS components to be used, enabling access to the latest technology.
