The aim of this research is to understand the degradation and lifetime fundamentals of the high (700–900 oC) temperature H2O electrolysis and to a certain extent for the H2O/CO2 co-electrolysis. The project is focusing on both of the Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cell (SOEC) electrodes, for minimization of their degradation and improvement of their performance and stability mainly under high temperature H2O electrolysis for the production of H2 and to a certain extent under H2O/CO2 co- electrolysis conditions for the production of syngas (H2 and CO).
