Hydrogen production by the GA sulfur-iodine process: a progress report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The progress of the overall total development effort of the General Atomic (GA) sulfur-iodine thermochemical water-splitting cycle over the last two years is summarized. The major accomplishments have been: significant improvements in the chemistry of the process; development, review, and revision of an engineering flowsheet, resulting in a thermal process efficiency of 47%; screening, identification, and testing of potential materials-of-construction for the corrosive process fluids; small-scale demonstration of the cycle in a closed loop under recycle conditions; installation of bench-scale equipment and demonstration of parts of the process in this system; and development of a conceptual, preliminary flowsheet for the ... continued below

The results of the work carried out during the last two years have demonstrated that thermochemical water splitting by the sulfur-iodine cycle is a feasible process and have provided confidence that thermal efficiencies in the range of 50% are achievable.
