DLR and partners inaugurate largest solar-thermochemical H2 production plant

Green Car Congress

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), together with international project partners, has inaugurated the largest solar-chemical installation yet for the production of hydrogen. In the transport sector, hydrogen drives can make a significant contribution towards climate protection. With this heat, water can be split into hydrogen and oxygen. Here, the researchers let water vapor flow through the reactor.
