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

#328 - Advances in Electrolytic and Thermochemical Processes (T8006)
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 will be high-temperature steam electrolysis using an advanced nuclear reactor as the heat and power source. However, contributions on other methods including solar are encouraged.
