Third Information Exchange Meeting, Oarai, Japan, 5-7 October 2005

Hydrogen has the potential to play an important role as a sustainable and environmentally acceptable energy carrier in the 21st century. Since natural sources of pure hydrogen are extremely limited, it is necessary to develop technologies to produce large quantities of hydrogen economically. The currently dominant technology for producing hydrogen is based on reforming fossil fuels, a process which releases greenhouse gases. Hydrogen produced by water cracking, using heat and surplus electricity from nuclear power plants, requires no fossil fuels and results in lower greenhouse gas emissions. This conference proceedings presents the state of the art in the nuclear production of hydrogen and describes its associated scientific and technical challenges.

Future Plan on Environmentally Friendly Hydrogen Production by Nuclear Energy

Nuclear Energy Agency

It is universally recognised that hydrogen is one of the best energy media and its demand will increase greatly in the near future. However, since little hydrogen exists naturally, it is necessary to develop suitable technology to produce hydrogen without CO2 emission from the view point of global environment al protection.
