The features of ceramic fuel cells developed in Ukraine are discussed and their  application for production of hydrogen and oxygen in a closed loop device combining ceramic fuel cells (CFC) and ceramic  electrolyser cells (CEC)  is  considered.  High-temperature electrolysis  is profitable for production of hydrogen and oxygen from hot water steam, that is outcoming gas of CFC’s reactions and released traditionally in environment, as it is demonstrated theoretically.
