Abstract

In the first session of this seminar, the thermochemical production of hydrogen was discussed in seven papers with special reference to the development and scaling up of an electrolytic cell for the anodic oxidation of sulphur dioxide and cathodic production of hydrogen of the sulphuric acid hybrid cycle, and to corrosion resistance of metallic alloys for sulphuric acid concentration or vaporization plants. The second session, containing 23 papers concentrated on hydrogen production by water electrolysis, divided into low and medium high temperature water electrolysis beginning with a report on seven years of research and development of advanced water electrolysers, and their technical advances and economic implications. At the end of each session, a summary of the relevant discussion, and abstracts of the papers delivered, are presented. The third and final session was devoted to the debate of hydrogen use, storage, and transportation, with 14 papers on materials, system studies, security studies, security, the use of hydrogen for synthetic fuels, and computed simulated flow sheeting.
