#181 - Developments in Thermochemical and Electrolytic Routes to Hydrogen Production: Part III (14002)
This symposium focuses on nontraditional methods for generating hydrogen that would reduce reliance on fossil fuels. A leading candidate is the use of heat from an advanced, high temperature nuclear reactor to dissociate water into hydrogen and oxygen. However, papers on any novel process for generating hydrogen, whether based on a nuclear energy source or otherwise, are encouraged. Typical processes include: - thermochemical cycles (e.g. Sulfur-Iodine) - hybrid cycles (e.g. Hybrid Sulfur) - electrolysis - photoelectrochemical methods - photobiological methods
