Due to the undesirable effects of adsorption heat on the adsorptive storage vessels, these storage systems are not efficient enough to utilize in the automotive industry currently. Despite the research on various aspects of the adsorptive storage, it appears that thermal, and accordingly flow, management is substantially effective in improving the performance of this type of storage for gaseous fuels especially natural gas. Fundamental aspects of an ideal thermal management unit were explained in this chapter from a thermodynamic standpoint. Several thermal management approaches proposed and tested in the literature were discussed. It was demonstrated that the applying thermal management to an adsorptive storage system results in two major benefits, namely higher gas storage and shorter filling time.
