Coauthored article by our engineers and coworkers, Toyota Motor Corporation and Japan Environment Systems, which title is "Outline and future development of transportation business using chemical heat storage materials" was posted on the magazine of JAPAN DISTRICT HEATING & COOLING ASSOCIATION.
JAPAN DISTRICT HEATING & COOLING ASSOCIATION contributes to the improvement of people's lives through the optimization of urban thermal environment and the realization of energy-saving cities by using urban heat supply processing systems to harmonize urban planning and urban development with urban energy use.
Chemical heat storage technology can save energy by effectively using unused waste heat from factories, and contribute to urban environments and energy policies by reducing oil consumption and realizing a low-carbon society.
In particular, the magnesium oxide / water-based chemical heat storage material we supply is highly expected as a material that has a high heat storage density, can store heat at around 300 ° C, is safe and suitable for transportation, and can store heat semipermanently.
Magnesium oxide-based chemical heat storage materials supplied by us are highly expected as materials that can store heat semi-permanently.
It has a high heat storage density, can store heat of about 300 ℃, and is safe and suitable for transportation.
In this article, we explain in detail the efforts related to the heat transport business, such as the development of chemical heat storage materials, reaction processes, business model and future prospects.
Tateho was in charge of writing “2. Heat storage material base material and molded body development" in this article.
CHARGEMAG® PM-1 is a product which has been succeeded in lowering the heat storage onset temperature and heat storage peak temperature by about 50°C than usual magnesium hydroxide by combining metal salts.
We are also developing products whose storage temperature is even lower than that. Please contact us for more information.
We have developed the CHARGEMAG® PM-1 magnesium hydroxide thermal storage medium that enables thermal storage at 300 °C.
