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

High-temperature decomposition of sulphuric acid is a major step for sulphur-based thermochemical cycles such as hybrid sulphur and sulphur-iodine. It is generally also the most energy-intensive, so that the overall heat requirement for this step can determine whether a particular decomposition reactor or flow sheet design is practical.
