Hydrogen is becoming an essential element of the energy supply chain. Hydrogen is not only an attractive chemical energy carrier but also a building block for other chemical energy carriers as well as a chemical feedstock and fuel. We work on the electrochemical and thermochemical production of hydrogen from renewable and conventional sources. This research includes high-temperature electrolysis of water using wind and solar power, pyrolysis of biomass and natural gas, partial oxidation as well as steam and dry reforming of methane, hydrocarbons, and metal hydrides, and also decomposition of ammonia.
