The distribution network for effective hydrogen deployment has yet to be developed. Currently,
there is virtually no pure hydrogen distribution infrastructure anywhere in the world and with the extreme high-pressure distribution requirements to transport hydrogen, the network would need to be built from the ground up at enormous infrastructure cost.
With NH3 as a comparator, 200 million tons of ammonia are used worldwide every year, with the corresponding distribution infrastructure well established.
Ammonia is regularly transported in tanker trucks, through pipelines and on ships with 120 ports around the world equipped to handle NH3. Additionally, the current propane gas distribution infrastructure can be converted to handle ammonia distribution requirements.
Further, with FuelPositive’s in-situ Carbon-Free NH3 production capabilities where appropriately
sized modular systems could be installed with the end user, the opportunities exist to reduce the global reliance on massive refineries, supertankers and pipelines.
