Proof of feasibility of the solar powered water splitting process in the solar furnace

The feasibility to drive the two-step thermochemical cycle by solar power has been demonstrated several times in a solar furnace. Water was split by applying solar concentrated radiation providing hydrogen and oxygen in two subsequent steps of the process. A continuous production of hydrogen was possible by using a multi-chamber reactor allowing to operate both steps of the process in parallel in different chambers. A multi-cycling of the process was possible up to 40 times with high potential to improve this number.
