Methane synthesis using a Sabatier-electrolyzer based on proton-conducting ceramics
The objective of this thesis is to study the performance of proton-conducting ceramics as a Sabatier-Electrolyzer in the synthesis of methane. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration seeks innovative space technology that can make use of resources in space via In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU). ISRU will enable sustainable human exploration and living in space by minimizing the materials carried from Earth. Available resources on Mars include carbon dioxide, which makes up 95% of the Martian atmosphere, and water, which is available in the form of ice within craters or regolith. ...
