I have been reading that hydrogen production, when coupled to a high temperature gas-cooled reactor, can increase "typical electrolysis efficiencies" by "45% to 50%". The following question is meant to encite opining. Why isn't this fact being touted more, in so far as advertisement to the public is concerned? It seems that such a power source would virtually secure the future of hydrogen. Are there any blairing engineering problems that haven't been addressed as yet dealing with the production of hydrogen by this method (besides the obvious fact that nuclear waste and nuclear power (in fission reactions anyway) will always be inseparably connected?
