Nuclear Water Splitting and High Temperature Reactors

  • H. Barnert
  • R. Schulten


The energy market in Germany and Europe is compared with that in the U.S.A. with the conclusion that nuclear energy is a very promising primary energy source for Germany and that the Nuclear Water Splitting seems to be the best method to make nuclear energy applicable. The motivations for research and development of the Nuclear Water Splitting are given. It is reported about activities in the Nuclear Research Center Juelich, especially on experiments for thermochemical cycles. First results for a Nuclear Hydrogen Plant in a Hydrogen Economy are given.
