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.


Status of the INERI sulphur-iodine integrated-loop experiment

Nuclear Energy Agency

In an International Nuclear Energy Research Initiative (INERI) project supported by the US DOE Office of Nuclear Energy, Sandia National Labs (SNL) has teamed with the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique (CEA) in France, and industrial partner General Atomics (GA) to construct and operate a closed-loop device for demonstration of hydrogen production by the S-I process. The Integrated Lab Scale (ILS) experiment is being conducted at General Atomics’ San Diego facility. This presentation will summarise project goals, work done to date, current status and scheduled future work on the INERI S-I integrated-loop experiment.
