Amogy’s Tractor Demonstration
On May 25, 2022, Amogy Demonstrated the First Ammonia-Powered, Zero-Emissions Tractor. Watch the recap.
Industries of Focus
Besides its high volumetric energy density and manageable boiling point, ammonia has several key advantages that make it a suitable choice for ocean-going vessels and smaller ships. Ammonia is already a globally traded commodity, with 20 million tons of the chemical shipped each year among almost 200 ports. The presence of existing transportation and storage infrastructure provides a ready foundation for a future zero-carbon fuel value chain in shipping.
Reducing carbon emissions from the trucking sector requires a transition from diesel-powered engines to alternative fuel and drivetrain technologies. Compared with compressed hydrogen, liquid ammonia has an energy density that is approximately 2.7 times greater, and it requires significantly less energy to store and transport safely. Using ammonia as a hydrogen carrier combined with a compact and high-efficiency cracker enables fuel cell trucks to be just as, if not more energy-efficient than present-day diesel engines.
Traditionally powered by fossil fuels such as gasoline, diesel, LPG, and compressed natural gas, the material-handling equipment market has seen a drastic shift toward electrification in recent years. Fuel cell forklifts offer tremendous growth opportunities. However, scaling up hydrogen fuel cells for use in material-handling equipment faces challenges related to fuel delivery and storage. Ammonia combined with an on-vehicle cracker can help to mitigate these challenges. With ammonia-handling safety guidelines already established within the industry, a mature delivery infrastructure in place, and cost-effective onsite storage, ammonia can offer all the benefits of hydrogen fuel cells while being more user-friendly.
Distributed Energy Systems and Data Centers
Data storage alone is anticipated to account for 14% of global emissions by 2040. To further decarbonization efforts and increase energy density, fuel cells can also be powered by hydrogen that is generated from renewable energy and carried by ammonia via a cracker. Like the heavy-duty transportation sector, stationary power generation can leverage ammonia’s relative ease of use and cost-effectiveness to store and distribute compared with hydrogen.
