H2IQ Hour: Ammonia: From Fertilizer to Energy Carriers
May 27, 2021, 12–1 p.m. ET
Join this month's H2IQ Hour to hear about ammonia research and development efforts at DOE's HFTO. In this H2IQ Hour, Grigorii Soloveichik of HFTO will provide an overview of how ammonia, or NH3, can play a role to enable clean hydrogen production and support DOE's goal of a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.
The world produces approximately 180 million tons of ammonia annually that primarily goes toward the fertilizer and chemical industries. Ammonia can serve as a low- or zero-carbon and flexible energy vector, and the infrastructure to store and transport it is well-established. Improvements in ammonia synthesis technologies are necessary to fully leverage the clean energy benefits from integrating ammonia in an energy system with increasing renewable energy participation. This webinar will discuss examples of new approaches to ammonia synthesis and utilization and how those can help accelerate the global use of ammonia as a hydrogen carrier and fuel for multiple industries, including energy storage. The H2IQ Hour will include a 45-minute live presentation, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. A recording of the H2IQ Hour will be available on the website after the event.
