POSTER Track 1. Innovative Fast Reactor Designs Poster Session

Nuclear energy utilization for hydrogen production is experiencing a growing momentum worldwide, associated with the unprecedented interest in building large-scale hydrogen production plants to support national and international decarbonization and climate change mitigation plans. Thermochemical water splitting cycles coupled to nuclear power plants are one of the sustainable solutions to replace the conventional polluting methane steam reforming and gasification processes of hydrogen production. Thermochemical hydrogen production cycles have been considered as an economic pathway for hydrogen production since 1960s. The paper discusses the use of fast reactor Small Modular Reactors coupled to the Copper-Chlorine thermochemical cycle for hydrogen production. This cycle is being developed at Ontario Tech University and the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. It is also being investigated by several other countries.
