Carbon-free ammonia production
Starfire Energy has developed a modular, flexible process to turn air, water, and clean electricity into ammonia – a hydrogen- and energy-dense liquid fuel with zero CO2 emissions when used in internal combustion or fuel cell applications.
Starfire initially incorporated two EL 2.0 Electrolysers into a prototype 10 kg/day ammonia production system, which takes nitrogen from the air and the green hydrogen, and turns them into pressurised liquid ammonia.
It is now scaling this technology up to a 0.1 tons/day system featuring 21 EL 2.1 Electrolysers, on its way to even larger commercial modular plants starting from 5 tons/day. This “Rapid Ramp” system has no need for hydrogen storage as it uses the gas from the electrolyser immediately to create ammonia, which is also easier and cheaper to store than hydrogen.
