by Jean-François Tremblay
June 10, 2018 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 96, ISSUE 24

 

Japan’s JGC will build a demonstration facility to make ammonia at low temperature and under low pressure. The technology is intended to improve the energy efficiency of hydrogen as a fuel. Ammonia is rich in hydrogen and often used to transport the energetic element over long distances. Developed in collaboration with Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science & Technology, the process makes use of a new catalyst to minimize CO2 emissions during production. The demonstration plant in Fukushima will have a production capacity of 20 kg per day.
