Description of the thesis topic
The project deals with the production of hydrogen by steam electrolysis, production of electricity through fuel cells, and even the valorization of CO 2 through coelectrolysis to produce syngas/high added value products. The final goal this project is the proof of concept for a unique reversible electrochemical cell, which could operate in (co)-electrolysis and fuel cell modes, at an optimized temperature between 550- 700°C, using composite electrolytes based on molten salts and solid oxide phases (Hybrid cells), to increase the conversion efficiencies and the delivered power when compared to the existing in Solid Oxide Cells and Molten Carbonate Cells. The phD student will contribute in the electrolyte and electrodes development, in the fabrication and the electrochemical characterizations of single cells
This thesis work will be done at the ICGM (UMR 5253) within the framework of the POSEYDON project funded by the ANR and under the supervision of Professor Gilles Taillades. ICGM is recognized for its implication in the development of proton conductive ceramics as intermediate temperature devices to produce electricity or hydrogen.
