Topical 8: Hydrogen Production for a Hydrogen Economy (T8)

#273 - Catalysts and Membranes for Thermochemical Cycles (T8002)
This session focuses on recent developments that advance hydrogen production by novel water splitting processes that reduce reliance on fossil fuels. The primary area for this session is thermochemical cycles, but the session will focus specifically on catalysts and membranes that are either necessary for reactions within the cycles or that improve efficiency or operability of the cycles. Contributions related to all thermochemical cycles as well as other water-splitting methods, including photoelectrochemical, and photobiological are encouraged.
