A new integrated system for oxygen recovery from carbon dioxide was investigated. Experimental studies indicated that it was feasible to integrate water electrolysis with carbon dioxide hydrogenation in an electrolysis cell using Pd-25Ag hydrogen-diffusion cathodes containing Sabatier catalyst. A closed system producing carbon appeared feasible from experiments on catalytic methane cracking followed by hydrogen separation from unreacted methane in an electrolytic hydrogen-concentration cell using Pd-25Ag electrodes. A small experimental breadboard system was designed and constructed.
