Technology Description:

Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) is developing a method to increase the production rate of stimulated hydrogen through promoting hierarchical cracks in reactant rock formations. The technical approach includes laboratory experiments and numerical modeling to combine and couple geochemistry, geomechanics, fracture mechanics, and porous media flow. The proposed work would enhance the injection design and fluid chemistry to ensure that hydrogen production rates do not decrease quickly over time, as prior laboratory experiments and numerical modeling have suggested.
