Overview

Fuel For A Mindful World

The world has discovered the potential of green ammonia to significantly reduce carbon emissions and surpass our Paris Agreement commitments. Only FuelPositive has the technology to make it happen economically and efficiently, now.

Our lead product, carbon-free ammonia (NH3), will revolutionize clean energy through a patent-pending, first-of-its-kind technology invented in Canada. Adoption will dramatically support global targets to reduce CO2 emissions. And the traditional ammonia industry will die out because it will be too expensive and too damaging to the environment.

Our carbon-free NH3 will not contribute to pollution. When used properly, in agriculture or as a fossil fuel replacement, the only discernable emissions will be water vapor, or in the case of agriculture, some hydrogen emissions which are completely inert. Nitrous Oxide (NOx) emissions, associated with traditional ammonia, will be avoided by using a catalytic convertor in engines and by injecting the liquid fertilizer deep into the ground (already standard practice) in farming. 

 

The world needs sustainable, clean energy to reduce carbon emissions. We’re ready to deploy our technology in the short term, bringing measurable results quickly.

What do we mean by sustainable?

FuelPositive’s carbon-free NH3 is produced by taking air, water and sustainable electricity and converting that into a non-polluting chemical, fertilizer and fuel.

Electricity is sustainable when it can be maintained over a period of time while not depleting resources or damaging the environment through carbon emissions. Sustainable electricity includes hydroelectric, wind, solar, biomass and geothermal power.

Will there be enough clean electricity?

Forecasts for the clean electricity market are strong as countries around the world are increasingly aggressive about meeting their Paris Agreement commitments. In Canada (which is by no means a global leader), over 85% of electricity in B.C., Manitoba, Quebec, Newfoundland & Labrador and the Yukon is hydroelectric. 

The price of renewables is continually dropping. According to a recent report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA): “The decade 2010 to 2020 saw renewable power generation becoming the default economic choice for new capacity. In that period, the competitiveness of solar (concentrating solar power, utilityscale solar photovoltaic) and offshore wind all joined onshore wind in the same range of costs as for new capacity fired by fossil fuels, calculated without financial support. Indeed, the trend is not only one of renewables competing with fossil fuels, but significantly undercutting them, when new electricity generation capacity is required.”

Canada, alone, has enough off-peak green electricity to provide non-polluting, carbon-free NH3 fuel to power 63% of all the passenger cars, light trucks, passenger aviation, buses, light rail, motorcycles, freight trucking, freight aviation, rail, marine and other sector vehicles in the country (based on 2019 data).

But even more exciting, Canada has enough off-peak green electricity to provide carbon-free NH3 to power 100% of the needs of passenger and freight aviation and rail, passenger bus, freight trucking, freight rail and freight marine shipping in Canada – all regulated industries that are notoriously high greenhouse gas emitters with significant government mandates to decarbonize. The result would be a 15.3% reduction in Canada’s total greenhouse gas emissions.
