Hydrogen Production Process Design and Economics: Part I

Summers, W. A., Savannah River National Laboratory
McLaughlin, D. F., Westinghouse Electric, LLC

Water can be split to make hydrogen by using heat from a high-temperature nuclear reactor to drive various hydrogen production processes such as thermochemical and hybrid cycles, and high temperature electrolysis. Hydrogen can also be produced by reforming biomass and wastes, by photochemical, biological and solar water-splitting, and by more conventional means. This session invites papers discussing the plant design, system analysis, economics, and infrastructure issues of hydrogen production. Analysis of plant efficiency and process modeling of hydrogen production processes (with emphasis on overall plant system performance) may also be included.
