Trucking solar energy—U. Delaware team dissociates zinc oxide in solar reactor to make ‘solar fuel’

By Eileen De Guire / February 18, 2013

Schematic diagram of one tile of solar reactor. Fifteen tiles arranged in a funnel shape comprise a solar reactor capable of reaching temperatures approaching 2,000 K, enough to dissociate zinc oxide. Zinc vapor is collected and condensed into micro- and nanoscale particles. Through hydrolysis, the zinc particles split water molecules and generate hydrogen. Credit: Prasad;…
