Abstract

This paper gives an overview of the solar thermochemical technologies for the production of hydrogen, marketable grade carbon black and metals with zero or near zero emission footprint. The paper also discusses carbon nanotubes (CNT) production from direct solar-cracking of methane. Process heat that is necessary to drive endothermic reactions for the production of hydrogen, carbon nanotubes and metals can be obtained from concentrated solar radiation, which eliminates or reduces green house and toxic gas emissions.
