SOLARO2: Oxygen generation and transport by based-on manganese oxides solar thermochemical processes

Research project under the call 2011 and reference: ENE2011-29293, within of the Subprogram of fundamental not-oriented research of the National Plan of Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation 2008-2011.

The proposed project aims at deepening in the knowledge of oxidation/reduction cycles based on manganese oxides in the field of solar chemistry at high temperatures to manage the oxygen content in a gas. This is an original subject in the scientific community working on high temperature processes driven by concentrated solar energy and it applies to research thematic fields like energy storage coupled to renewable energies, CO2 sequestration, and solar technologies.
