"Industrial materials processing, hydrogen storage system design, construction and testing"

Ahmed Talaat / Experienced Researcher at Zoz GmbH in Wenden, Germany

Working title

Industrial materials processing, hydrogen storage system design, construction and testing.


  • Thermodynamic and kinetic characterization of materials from upscaled synthesis process
  • Design of a prototype hydrogen storage system
  • Determination of systems performance
  • Techno-economical evaluation

Tasks and methodology

Develop high energy milling industrial processing route for hydrogen storage materials, selected from the most promising materials investigated within this project. Competitive cost effective raw materials from work package 8.1 will be selected, characterized and evaluated. An advanced hydrogen storage tank will be designed and tested, with the aim to improve the hydrogen storage capacity for mobile and stationary applications, while considering the cycling stability.

Short CV

Ahmed Talaat graduated in chemistry from the university of Mansoura (Egypt) in 2009 and received his Ph.D. (extraordinary award) in materials physics from the university of the Basque Country (Spain) in 2016 along with a master degree in nanoscience from the same university in 2013. His research interest spans several topics of materials science including ferromagnetic amorphous and nanostructured materials, metallic glasses, crystallization kinetics, phase transitions, rapid solidification, magneto-electric effects (giant magneto-impedance GMI), magneto-transport properties at elevated frequencies, magnetic domain wall dynamics, structural evolution of metallic glasses, magnetostrictive properties, magnetic hyperthermia, sensing applications.
His research output (Researcher ID: A-1664-2015) is reflected within more than 50 peer-reviewed publications (h-index: 7), 3 book chapters, additionally he served as a technical reviewer of a number of journals: Journal of Materials & Design, Journal of Metals, Journal of Alloys and Compounds, IEEE Magnetics Letters, etc.
