About the Editors

Xing L. Yan and Ryutaro Hino both work for the Japan Atomic Energy Agency.

Yan received his Ph.D from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He participated in the United States Department of Energy's development program on the modular high-temperature gas-cooled reactor and contributed to the Energy Research Center of the Netherlands' program for small high-temperature reactor cogeneration plant designs. At the JAEA, he has led the technical design and technology development for a commercial series of nuclear hydrogen production systems.

Hino received his Ph.D from the University of Tokyo. He is the only researcher at the JAEA who has experience in all three leading nuclear hydrogen production methods under worldwide development: steam reforming of methane, high-temperature electrolysis, and thermochemical water splitting. He was awarded the 2007 Prize of the Atomic Energy Society of Japan for his contribution to the successful development of new ceramic heat exchangers used for high-temperature thermochemical hydrogen production.
