Platts: Terrestrial Energy teams with DOE, laboratories on hydrogen project

From Platts:

Terrestrial Energy announced Wednesday it is partnering with Southern Company and several US Department of Energy laboratories to develop a “more climate-friendly process for producing industrial hydrogen” using Terrestrial Energy’s generation IV Integral Molten Salt Reactor.

“The two-year research and development project will examine the efficiency, design and economics of the IMSR® power plant to produce carbon-free, industrial-scale hydrogen using the hybrid sulfur process,” Terrestrial Energy said in a statement Wednesday. “This carbon-free method of generating hydrogen from water may be more efficient that high-temperature steam electrolysis.”
