A breakthrough in hydrogen storage technology was achieved by preparing nanocrystalline hydrides using high-energy ball milling and the use of suitable catalysts/additives. These new materials show fast or in case of Mg-based hydrides very fast absorption and desorption kinetics within minutes, thus qualifying lightweight Mg- or Al-based hydrides for storage applications. This article summarizes our current understanding of the kinetics of Mg-based light metal hydrides, describes an approach for a cost-effective processing technology and highlights some promising new developments in lightweight metal hydride research.
