JERA, MHI to develop an ammonia single-fuel burner suitable for coal-fired boilers

In a significant moment for the hydrogen economy, JERA and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) have been given the green light to carry out a project that aims to develop an ammonia single-fuel burner suitable for coal-fired boilers.

Enabling efficient, low-cost transport and storage of hydrogen, ammonia holds a key role in a clean energy future due to it not emitting carbon dioxide when burned.

JER and MHI today (Jan 7) confirmed they are set to take advantage of the clean energy carrier, having received notice of acceptance of their grant application, under the Greene Innovation Fund program of the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organisation (NEDO).

Having now received this, the companies have committed to a timeline for the project, in which they have committed to developing a new burner capable of single-fuel ammonia combustion and raw up a master plan for equipment to demonstrate its use in actual boilers.
