A new end-to-end, clean, and low temperature solution, currently under development for the production of green ammonia, is hoping to replace the 235 million metric tons of industrial ammonia produced today.
GenCell Energy and TDK Corporation today (23rd Feb) signed a framework agreement for the development of the solution that will produce ammonia for fertilisers, marine shipping and GenCell’s alkaline fuel cells.
The ability to produce not only clean power from GenCell’s fuel cells, but also the green fuel on which the fuel cells run, sets GenCell in a far superior position as a well-to-wheel total green energy solution provider.
Commenting on the development, Rami Reshef, GenCell CEO said, “GenCell salutes our partners at TDK for their leadership, commitment and perseverance in working with us to flesh out these designs and concepts for green ammonia synthesis and to translate them into valuable scientific knowhow and repeatable processes that will allow us to revolutionise, streamline and economize ammonia production.”
“We are confident that our disruptive and economical approach will displace costly alternatives and garner interest and market share both for TDK and GenCell. More importantly, this technology will enable the broad availability of green ammonia and the proliferation of self-sustaining green ammonia-driven “nano-power” stations that will empower us to move towards eliminating carbon emissions and neutralising the climate crisis. “
“The future is now, and the future of energy is green ammonia.”
Dai Matsuoka, CTO, TDK Corporation, added, “Looking at the excellent progress we have made to date in our technology cooperation with GenCell, we are confident that together we will succeed in translating this vision to reality and in applying deep materials science knowledge to create the chemistry that will fuel our future.”
