Tokyo Tech scientists discover new catalysts that can convert ammonia to hydrogen at lower temperatures

A group of researchers from the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) has developed a new catalyst that can decompose ammonia at temperatures 100°C lower than conventional catalysts for hydrogen production.

Ammonia is a crucial resource in the global market for transporting hydrogen over long distances with the fuel able to be reconverted to hydrogen on delivery.

Despite this, it is often expensive to turn ammonia back into hydrogen due to the high levels of energy needed to heat the process.
