However, current NH3 manufacturing is one of the most concentrated global contributors to greenhouse gas emissions and has been produced virtually the same way for 100+ years. The process begins with separation of nitrogen from air. The hydrogen is produced by a process called “steam reforming-a-hydrocarbon” (SMR). By pressurizing and heating both gases together in a reactor with a catalyst, NH3 is formed, as is a significant amount of CO2 as a by-product.
FuelPositive’s patent-pending first-of-its-kind modular and scalable Carbon-Free NH3 technology takes water, air and a sustainable electricity source and converts that efficiently into a versatile, non-polluting material that can then be stored and used in multiple applications, including as a clean fuel source.
The FuelPositive Carbon-Free NH3 technology can be leveraged for multiple applications: smaller stand-alone fuel generation systems will be appropriate to generate fossil fuel replacement for transportation companies; agricultural systems will be suitable for significant farming enterprises; and grid storage systems for significant hydro, wind, solar or geothermal electricity generation operations around the world.
The opportunities to deploy FuelPositive’s Carbon-Free NH3 technology on a global scale to support reduced greenhouse gas emissions targets is profound. Learn more about a few of the applications for FuelPositive’s technology here.
