Abstract

Reversible thermochemical reactions are one of the possibilities to store and transport high temperature heat (800 degrees K up to 1300 degrees K). There are open cycles and closed cycles. Some reversible systems are described, as the SO-2-SO-3 system. A typical example of open cycle is the reaction for water decomposition. Results of a pilot plant to verify the decomposition of sulfuric acid are described; the technological feasibility of this method for hydrogen production is shown. The possibility to use other high temperature sources, as solar energy is discussed.
