Trucking solar energy--U. Delaware team dissociates zinc oxide in solar reactor to make 'solar fuel'

April 2013
American Ceramic Society Bulletin;Apr2013, Vol. 92 Issue 3, p16
The article discusses research on the development of solar reactor that could be used for direct solid particle decomposition. It references a study by Erik Koepf and colleagues, published in the 2012 issue of the "International Journal of Hydrogen Energy." Researchers examined the potential of the reactor to offer and produce cheap energy sources.
