Texas Tech duo envisions small-scale ammonia fuel systems

September 9, 2011 |

In Texas, John Fleming of SilverEagles Energy and Jim Maxwell with Texas Tech University report that they are working up a process to produce ammonia as fuel.  If successful, their system can be installed at local filling stations where it will produce hydrogen by electrolysis and then pull nitrogen from the atmosphere by way of the Haber-Bosh process.  The ammonia can then be used as a fuel for vehicles, producing only water and nitrogen as emissions.  The individual units will reportedly be able to produce between 4000 and 40,000 liters a day.
