A Key To The ‘Hydrogen Economy’ Is Carbon-Free Ammonia
If you’ve been even remotely paying attention to the electric energy arena in the past year or two, you have likely been hearing an increasing amount of discussion concerning the hydrogen economy. It seems that every other day, there is a big announcement from yet another global player jumping into green hydrogen or amplifying an existing commitment. Hydrogen (H2 – the hydrogen atoms like to travel together) is the most abundant element in the universe, and its combustion results in water as a byproduct. It can be utilized in sectors of the economy that have been hard to decarbonize, such as steelmaking and marine transport. It may also serve as a long-term storage medium in the power industry. As a consequence, governments and industries around the world are increasingly focusing their efforts on building out the infrastructure necessary to support a hydrogen economy....
Within the decade, the hope is that (TDK and GenCell) will have the entire ammonia-based and carbon-free chain developed, with the solution increasingly popular in the marketplace, “like batteries are today.” Of course, there are multiple challenges ahead, and the use cases may well change. However, GenCell has already overcome many major hurdles and now that they are teamed up with TDK, it’s a vision well worth observing to see how it may unfold in the months and years to come.
