Green ammonia production supports the use of ammonia as a renewable fuel
Ammonia is critical to the production of fertilisers for the agriculture industry. It is also used as a refrigerant and to produce plastics, explosives, pesticides and other commercially important chemicals. One ammonia use not exploited to date is as an energy carrier. Ammonia has a high hydrogen content and high energy volumetric density; moreover, unlike H2, it is easily compressed and liquified for storage. However, its production currently relies on high-temperature, high-pressure, energy-intensive processes that lead to increased emissions. The EU-funded TELEGRAM project is developing green electrochemical processes to produce ammonia, addressing one energy problem without exacerbating another.
