Hydrogen Directly from the Sun ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
Main scope of this R&D Project is to demonstrate that”green” hydrogen production is possible through the realization of Outotec Open Cycle and Hybrid-sulphur (HyS) cycle using only solar energy.
Here are the specifics of the program.
SOL2HY2, is a multi-disciplinary project with a strong participation of research-intensive university (Aalto University Foundation, Finland) and R&D centres (DLR – German Aerospace Authority, ENEA – Agenzia per le Nuove Tecnologie,
l’Energia e lo Sviluppo Economico Sostenibile, Italy), industry (Outotec Corp., Finland) and SMEs (EnginSoft S.p.A., Italy; Erbicol S.A., Switzerland, Oy Woikoski AB, Finland).
SOL2HY2 is a Research Project co-financed by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking
