Grid Scale Storage
Electrochemical Ammonia Synthesis for Grid Scale Energy Storage
Ceramatec, Inc. | Salt Lake City, UT |
Ceramatec, Inc., along with its team members, will develop a modular electrochemical process for a power-to-liquid fuel system based on ammonia. A new synthesis approach will combine chemical and electrochemical steps to facilitate the high-energy step of breaking the molecular nitrogen bond. The proposed method could enable distributed ammonia production for energy storage, alternative fuels and agriculture, decrease energy input by more than 20%, and substantially simplify the process.
