Thermochemical production of hydrogen

A. Giaconia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


The growing interest in hydrogen as a chemical reactant and energy carrier requires evaluation of all possible conversion processes for its production. This chapter analyses the different processes currently used for hydrogen production, together with the most promising approaches currently under development. Among the latter are thermochemical water-splitting cycles powered by renewable (sustainable) energy sources. A simplified description of the basic thermodynamic aspects of this process is presented, and some examples are presented.
