CENIT-CONSOLIDA: Solar Hydrogen (Activity 11)

Project covering the Activity 11 within the Industrial R&D Initiative CENIT "Consolida: Consortium for Solar R&D" coordinated by the companie Hynergreen Technologies and granted at the fourth call of CENIT Programme of the Ministry of Science and Education.

Within the activity "Solar Hydrogen" the program of work aims to analyze the feasibility of using thermochemical cycles for the production of hydrogen taking into account the state of the art, the fundamental research to be undertaken and the development of cycles with high potential integration with solar energy at high temperatures. The research includes the selection of a suitable cycle, thermodynamics and kinetics analyses, and the development of an appropriate solar reactor.
