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

#391 - Advances in Alternative Thermochemical Cycles (T8007)
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 alternative thermochemical cycles, i.e. those that are not sulfur-based cycles. However, contributions on other methods including solar are encouraged.
