Liquid ammonia is one of the most promising methods for storing and transporting hydrogen.
Ammonia (NH3) actually packs in more hydrogen than hydrogen (H2), making it the ideal hydrogen carrier and it burns cleanly and does not form soot or particles.
Now consider that ammonia is superior to hydrogen itself in every one of these areas. Given this, it stands to reason that proponents of hydrogen fuel cells should embrace ammonia as a valuable enabling technology that can elevate the feasibility and improve the economics of fuel-cell-based systems.
Australian Future Energy (AFE) has the capability to produce high quality ammonia as part of its ongoing offering.
With a number of major automotive companies focusing on ammonia as part of their fuel cell applications or ammonia-to-hydrogen conversion systems AFE hopes to harness the growing demand for products including:
Cold storage – Liquid ammonia is one of the most promising methods for storing and transporting hydrogen.
Industrial products – It is commonly used as raw material in the manufacturing of fertilisers and explosives
Energy storage – Ammonia’s capacity to hold hydrogen can elevate the feasibility and improve the economics of fuel-cell-based hydrogen run systems as a clean burning fuel.
