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

#455 - Advances in Hybrid Thermochemical Cycles (T8008)
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 hybrid thermochemical cycles, i.e. those cycles that include an electrochemical step, such as the Hybrid Sulfur cycle. However, contributions on other methods including solar are encouraged.
