- Ammonia has recently been drawing attention as a clean fuel that does not emit CO2. The potential of ammonia (NH3) as a hydrogen carrier is very high. It is the most compact hydrogen carrier candidate and easy to transport and store. In addition, it is a gas at normal temperature and pressure, and its boiling point is -33.3 degC, so it is easy to liquefy.
- Approximately 18 million tons of ammonia are currently produced worldwide and are mainly used as a raw material for fertilizer. About 10% of total ammonia production is traded through international marine transportation, and commercially, production and transportation technologies have already been established.
- Ammonia is expected to be used for power generation by direct combustion, fuel for fuel cells, and burner and ship fuel.
- On the other hand, when ammonia is burned, it produces NOx and N2O, but catalysts can address these gases. Ammonia is a very easy-to-use material in terms of technology and price under controlled environments such as power generation and various factories, as long as you pay attention to the toxicity of ammonia.
- We provide not only ammonia reforming catalysts but also catalysts that can treat NH3, NOx, and N2O leaked when ammonia is used as fuel.
