Nuclear Production of Hydrogen

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

image of Nuclear Production of Hydrogen

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.

Predicting the energy efficiency of a recuperative bayonet decomposition reactor for sulphur-based thermochemical hydrogen production

Nuclear Energy Agency

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.
