SOEC: Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cell※1

      

Toshiba has been working hard on the development of a next-generation water electrolyzer called SOEC for producing large quantities of high-quality hydrogen※2. SOEC achieves approximately 30% higher efficiency and lower power consumption than conventional polymer electrolyte cells.

Efforts for a sustainable society - Circular Economy - (P2C)

Power to Chemicals

           

Turn CO2 into valuable resource by P2C technology

When the emitted CO2 is decomposed by the electric power of renewable energy and combined with hydrogen, it can be recycled again.We call it P2C. Carbon recycle technology that uses renewable energy.

Power to Chemicals

CO2 electrolysis technology (Application of artificial photosynthesis technology)

      

The technology to realize P2C is an application of artificial photosynthesis technology.

1. Apply renewable energy electricity to the light for artificial photosynthesis.
