Hydrogen storage and distribution will be two very important aspects of any renewable energy infrastructure that uses hydrogen as energy vector. The chemical storage of hydrogen in compounds like sodium borohydride (NaBH<inf>4</inf>) could play an important role in overcoming current difficulties associated with these aspects. Sodium borohydride is a very attractive material due to its high hydrogen content. In this paper, we describe a reactor where a stable cobalt based catalyst supported on a commercial Cordierite Honeycomb Monolith (CHM) is employed for the hydrolysis of alkaline stabilized NaBH<inf>4</inf> (SBH) aqueous solutions. The apparatus is able to operate at up to 5 bar and 130 Â°C, providing a hydrogen generation rate of up to 32 L min<sup>-1</sup>.
