Evaporative drying of cupric-chloride droplets in a thermo-chemical cycle of hydrogen production
In this thesis, new empirical correlations that predict the behaviour of Cupric-Chloride droplets undergoing spraying and drying processes are developed. Cupric-Chloride is a chemical compound with the formula CuCl2 that ...
Thermodynamic anaysis of an integrated photovoltaic system for hydrogen and methanol production
A solar based integrated system for hydrogen and methanol production is investigated. Energy and exergy analyses of a hydrogen production plant, thermodynamic assessment of methanol synthesis plant, and exergy analysis of ...
Kinetics and transport phenomena in the chemical decomposition of copper oxychloride in the thermochemical Cu-CI Cycle
The thermochemical copper-chlorine (Cu-Cl) cycle for hydrogen production includes three chemical reactions of hydrolysis, decomposition and electrolysis. The decomposition of copper oxychloride establishes the high-temperature ...
Development of a new hybrid photochemical/electrocatalytic water splitting reactor for hydrogen production: design, analysis and experiments
Solar-driven water splitting combines several attractive features for sustainable energy utilization. The conversion of solar energy to a type of storable energy has crucial importance. An alternative method to hydrogen ...
