A summary of the Third Information Exchange Meeting on the nuclear production of hydrogen
The Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has organised three international exchange meetings on hydrogen production through nuclear power. The most recent meeting was held in October 2005 in Oarai, Japan, and was sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency. The two-and-a-half-day conference covered a full range of topics related to the nuclear production of hydrogen. Presentations were made and discussions were held on the economic prospects of a hydrogen economy and nuclear power's potential role in it, global research and development activities related to hydrogen production technologies, the coupling of hydrogen production facilities to nuclear heat sources, and basic and applied science supporting nuclear hydrogen generation.
