Ammonia production as a renewable fuel
Ammonia is widely considered as the future ideal renewable fuel. The EU-funded ORACLE project will develop scalable alternative reaction technologies integrating catalysts and reactor technology for decentralised production of ammonia from N2 and H2O. The project will develop and validate at TRL3 three strands of ammonia synthesis: electrocatalytic, plasma-aided electrocatalytic and electrified thermal catalysis process that will serve as a benchmark. ORACLE will test overlooked electrocatalysts for electrochemical synthesis of ammonia from N2 and H2O, develop plasma-aided electrochemical cells and test exciting new concepts of NOx and H2 recombination to ammonia in an electrochemical cell to increase the selectivity. The ORACLE system processes will potentially decisively transform current large scale ammonia-based production.
