Please listen to the podcast -- Richard Wool says specifically that the hydrogen is stored at low-to-moderate pressure (& reduced temperatures): 40-50 bars.

The nano-pores that are formed on the feathers with the heating are 8 angstroms. Other solid storage systems cost much much more.

There are 6 billion pounds of chicken feathers in the US alone.
