Project to Demonstrate Hydrogen Production Using IMSR
- Sep 12, 2018 11:47 pm GMT
Terrestrial Energy USA is partnering with utility Southern Company and several US Department of Energy national laboratories to develop innovative methods of the producing hydrogen using its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR).
The two-year research and development project will examine the efficiency, design and economics of using the IMSR to produce hydrogen in commercial quantities using the hybrid sulfur process.
Terrestrial is interested in investigating the feasibility and cost effectiveness of this method of generating hydrogen from water which may be more efficient than high-temperature steam electrolysis. The project aims to demonstrate the commercial and industrial-scale viability of pairing the hybrid sulfur process with an ISMR plant for large-scale production of hydrogen which will have zero greenhouse gas emissions.
