Scientific research of hydrogen interaction with metals and alloys was initiated in laboratory by professor K.Semenenko in 1976.

First practical applications which were designed basing on obtained results, were laboratory Чистякова Н.Я.metal-hydride hydrogen storage systems. These portable sources of high purity hydrogen
have found application not only in chemical laboratories, but also even in observatories.



In 1985 laboratory hydrogen strorage units were awarded 2 bronze medals of Exhibition of achievements of USSR economy.





As a result of cooperation of laboratory scientists with designers and engineers of ZiL car factory the first Soviet lorry, powered by hydrogen-gasoline mixture, was issued in 1983. Hydrogen stored in 4 metal-hydride tanks with TVI-2 alloy, worked out in the laboratory, provided additional run of 200 km and promoted decrease of nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide  content in exhaust gases up to 10 times.
