Ammonia craking for clean electric power technology (ACCEPT)

Objective

The ACCEPT proposal suggests to evaluate the potential of ammonia as fuel for fuel cells. NH3 offers energy efficiencies at least equal to methanol but on a local level is CO2 free and furthermore, offers zero emission potential. The project has three branches, one for PEMFC+NH3, consisting of 5 WP's; one for SOFC+NH3evaluation (1WP) and one for a paper study of NH3 feasibility for use with fuel cells (3WP's) including supply chain and safety evaluation and a prospective technology and life cycle emission analysis. The output will be the feasibility of NH3 as fuel for the 2 most prominent fuel cell versions. If positive, it will offer benefits like increased energy efficiency and choice, GHG and pollutant reduction (zero emission potential) by offering a cheap reliable source of H2.The consortium assembles resources of 9 partners from 6 countries to fully investigate this interesting alternative bridge fuel.
