Final Report - HYDROSOL II (Solar Hydrogen via Water Splitting in Advanced Monolithic Reactors for Future Solar Power plants)

Project ID: 20030
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the final publishable activity report of the HYDROSOL-II project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, HYDROSOL-II aimed to develop a hydrogen production process using water as a material and exploiting solar energy, with virtually zero CO2 emissions, that could be implemented at a commercial scale.

The document analyses the project objectives and the challenges that needed to be addressed. It then describes the thermochemical reactions involved in the technology, the work performed and the achievements of each research period. It compares HYDROSOL-II achievements to other relevant contemporary technologies and concludes with analysing the importance of the findings for sustainable fuels production and with proposing ways of further investigation, implementation and commercial use.
