Siemens, FFI, GeoPura begin work on £3.5m ammonia cracker prototype

Siemens Energy, Fortescue Future Industries (FFI), and GeoPura have begun work on a £3.5m ($4.17m) ammonia cracker prototype to produce green hydrogen at industrial scale in Newcastle, UK.

The consortium has said the system will be designed to deliver high-purity hydrogen, suitable for PEM fuel cell use, using FFI’s Metal Membrane Technology (MMT) purification process, which selectively filters hydrogen whilst blocking other gases.

With ammonia offering a high density, readily transportation and storage option for hydrogen, it is hoped the cracker and MMT, if successful will allow green hydrogen to be recovered without releasing carbon emissions, to be used for mobility and off-grid power applications.
