Nuclear Production of Hydrogen

Fourth Information Exchange Meeting, Oakbrook, Illinois, USA , 14-16 April 2009

Hydrogen has the potential to play an important role as a sustainable and environmentally acceptable energy carrier in the 21st century. This report describes the scientific and technical challenges associated with the production of hydrogen using heat and/or electricity from nuclear power plants, with special emphasis on recent developments in high-temperature electrolysis and the use of different chemical thermodynamic processes. Economics and market analysis as well as safety aspects of the nuclear production of hydrogen are also discussed.

Hide / Show Abstract

The DOE Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative has selected two sulphur cycles, the sulphur iodine (SI) cycle and the HyS process, as the first priority thermochemical processes for development and potential demonstration with the next generation nuclear plant. Both cycles share a common high temperature reaction step – the catalytic thermal decomposition of sulphuric acid. However, they are fundamentally different in the methods used for the hydrogen production step.
