THOR aims at developing a cost-effective thermoplastic composite pressure vessel for hydrogen storage both for vehicle and for transportation applications. Thermoplastics appear as a promising solution to the challenges faced by conventional tanks in terms of compatibility with hydrogen service and with mass automotive market requirements. The use of thermoplastic materials, advanced numerical modeling techniques and innovative manufacturing processes will boost the performance, improve safety, enable optimized tank geometry and weight and reduce the cost for mass production.


  • April 30th 2019 : Exposition ACT Los Angeles

    Some partners went to the site of the Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) in Los Angeles in 4/2019. The objective was to assess the interest of our new technology and to know more about the different market players. Thus, more than 25 new contacts were then established, and the stand, above, was extremely busy.

  • February 7th – 8th 2019 : THOR kick off meeting

    THOR kick off meeting : Faurecia has welcome all partners in a unique touristic area in Bavans (Alsace – France) at their research center. It will be the start of a fruitful collaboration of these three years of European collaborative project for the development of composite pressure vessels.

  • January 16th - 17th 2020 : THOR 12 Months meetings

    THOR partners have met for the third time. This meeting took place in Leuven and took place on January 16 and 17, 2020. The meeting was organized so that each partner presents their work by recontextualizing it in their work package. Thus, each work package was examined and reported on its progress. The progress of the project will also be necessary with an estimate of the delay as well as an update of the GanTT diagram. The delay in deliverables, those which are not in production in...
