Temporary high-pressure Hydrogen storage?

  1. Sep 12, 2016 #1
    I've been looking into compressed Hydrogen storage, and it seems that the high pressure containers have a lot of layers on the inside to keep the Hydrogen from leaking out/diffusing over the lifetime. However now I'm curious as to whether you could use a tank to store high-pressure Hydrogen (in the 10,000 psi range) for a short while (in the 3-4 hr range) while the hydrogen gets converted to hydride for more longterm storage?

    Kind of wasteful, compressing it, isn't it?

    Many practical difficulties and extremely dangerous - just don't do it .
