ALKAMMONIA: Ammonia-fuelled alkaline fuel cells for remote power applications

ALKAMMONIA: Ammonia-fuelled alkaline fuel cells for remote power applications

Objective

In project ALKAMMONIA a proof-of-concept system designed to provide power in remote applications will be developed and tested.
The project will integrate three innovative and proven technologies: a highly efficient and low-cost alkaline fuel cell system, and a novel ammonia fuel system which consists of a fuel delivery system and a cracker system for generation of a hydrogen rich gas. The integrated system will be rigorously tested and the results will be shared with leading telecommunication end-users.
A high proportion (> 75%) of the financial request would be spent on personnel costs, creating highly skilled permanent jobs in the European clean energy sector.
The consortium is comprised of global leaders in the fields of alkaline fuel cell development, fuel cell system integration, fuel cell certification, ammonia cracking technology and energy technology assessment. The fuel cell and fuel processing technologies that are combined in project ALKAMMONIA have both demonstrated excellence at laboratory test level. The consortium is ideally suited to combine the three technologies and deliver a working proof-of-concept system that will demonstrate its potentially commercial viability in highly lucrative target markets.
