      • An Aspen Plus simulation of a five-step Cu–Cl cycle is developed.
      • A more realistic user-defined electrolyzer model is simulated using Fortran.
      • The effect of production yields on reaction heats in each step is evaluated.
      • To achieve high CuO · CuCl2 yields, an excess amount of steam is needed.
      • Efficiency of the Cu–Cl cycle is calculated as 44% on the basis of the lower heating value of hydrogen.
    2. Study on zero CO2 emission atmospheric pressure SOFC hybrid power system integrated with OTM (pages 1403–1415)

      Polyaniline/multi-walled carbon nanotubes were first used in microbial fuel cell. Cost comparisons of various cathode catalysts proved the superiority of novel catalyst. Wastewater treatment and electricity generation were accomplished simultaneously.

    4. Heat generation in high power prismatic Li-ion battery cell with LiMnNiCoO2 cathode material (pages 1424–1437)

      Yasir Abdul-Quadir, Tomi Laurila, Juha Karppinen, Kirsi Jalkanen, Kai Vuorilehto, Lasse Skogström and Mervi Paulasto-Kröckel

      The heat generation in a battery cell is calculated by measuring the overpotential resistances with four different methods and entropic heat generation in the cell. Calorimeter tests are carried out to compare the calculated and measured heat generation.

    5. Evaluation of GTHTR300A nuclear power plant design with dry cooling (pages 1467–1477)

      Xing Yan, Hiroyuki Sato, Yoshitomo Inaba, Hiroki Noguchi, Yukio Tachibana and Kazuhiko Kunitomi

      Version of Record online: 22 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/er.3172

    6. Latent heat energy storage characteristics of building composites of bentonite clay and pumice sand with different organic PCMs (pages 1478–1491)

      In this study, six new kinds of BCPCMs, BC/PEG1000, PS/PEG1000, BC/octadecane, PS/octadecane, BC/CA–MA, and PS/CA–MA composites, were prepared. The BCPCMs were characterized by SEM, FT-IR, DSC, and TG techniques. The DSC measurements indicated that the LHTES properties make them promising BCPCMs for low temperature-passive TES applications in buildings. Thermal cycling test and TG analysis indicated that they have good thermal reliability, chemical stability, and thermal durability. In addition, the thermal conductivity of BCPCMs was enhanced considerably by addition of EG.
