    To settle some arguments does anyone know how safety concerns are handled
    with present hydrogen generation and storage?

    There was talk years ago with fuel cells in cars to staore in metal mesh
    filled containers to prevent explosions on impact or other stimuli.

    One of the big problems is the hydrogen had to be preheated to 500 degrees
    (I think) and it was extremely volatile. Apparently that was the only issue
    outstanding 20 years ago from making a production fuel cell automobile.
    There is a model out now from one of the European expensive models so
    perhaps they had some solutions to the danger of storing liquid hydrogen.

    I've read that there are some very efficient ways to generate hydrogen
    using catalysts and high waste heat from industrial processes. The Chinese
    pebble bed reactor being developed has had hydrogen generation mentioned as
    a feature. Of course since it comes out very hot, the storage method you
    mentioned would be simple to implement.
