About the company
HYSTORSYS AS is a spin-off company from the Norwegian Institute for Energy Technology (IFE), and focuses on the use of metal hydrides for compression and storage of hydrogen.

HYSTORSYS benefits from more than 40 years experience from IFE concerning the properties, synthesis and behaviour of hydrogen in solid materials – the metal hydrides (MH).



Compressor development
HYSTORSYS is developing high purity compressors for hydrogen with almost no moving parts and practically no noise and vibrations. Using waste heat, the compressor may be operated at almost no energy cost. As a result, the metal hydride compressors developed should have a very low maintenance level, and hence also low maintenance cost.




Our target is that the compressors from HYSTORSYS shall be less costly to build, less costly to operate and less costly to maintain than other compressor designs
















Efficient utilisation of renewable energy requires
energy storage. Metal hydride technology offers
efficient and safe compression and storage
of hydrogen.
