Formic acid: Thermo-economic evaluation
With regard to sustainability it is often referred to the “Hydrogen Economy” as an alternative to cover the energy needs by using hydrogen as a fuel source. The goal of this project is to study the production of hydrogen by using the formic acid decomposition and production cycle. The decomposition of formic acid yielding hydrogen and CO2 might be interesting in view of reducing the CO2 emissions by CO2 capture and storage (CCS). The hydrogen fuel can be used in a fuel cell or engine to generate electricity.
