Ammonia & Fuel Cells

PEM Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles
A number of the world’s leading automobile manufacturers have commenced making Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV’s) in recent years. These vehicles have PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cells which are fueled by hydrogen gas carried on board in high pressure gas tanks. The fuel cells provide a very efficient conversion of the energy contained in the hydrogen fuel, into electricity to propel the vehicle. This conversion efficiency is much higher than that achieved using the hydrogen fuel in an internal combustion engine and it is therefore likely that the FCEV’s will be the carbon free way forward rather than hydrogen fueled combustion engines. The leading manufacturers of FCEV’s are:
– Toyota with their Mirai
– Hyundai with their Nexo
These FCEV’s have high pressure 700 bar hydrogen gas tanks on board to achieve a reasonable energy density. The vehicles can be re fueled…

Green ammonia pilot plants now running, in Oxford and Fukushima

by Trevor Brown

Two new pilot projects for producing “green ammonia” from renewable electricity are now up and running and successfully producing ammonia.

In April 2018, the Ammonia Manufacturing Pilot Plant for Renewable Energy started up at the Fukushima Renewable Energy Institute – AIST (FREA) in Japan. Earlier this week, Siemens launched operations at its Green Ammonia Demonstrator, at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory outside Oxford in the UK.

Green Ammonia is finally taking off… CO2-free ”Gasoline”

note: It’s been a while since our Ammonia posts were updated. Now Ammonia energy is going mainstream, but 10 years ago we were like mad prophets screaming WHAT ABOUT AMMONIA.
NH3.....Hydrogen is ‘sexy’, but hard to contain and control, while Ammonia, though old and smelly is a cheap natural Hydrogen container .. NH3. Science has answers, but it’s insane capitalism that still rules. Finally it’s accepted what we said all along, that you can produce Ammonia with renewables anywhere in any quantity from just air, water and some catalysts. No excuse now for not closing down the huge fossil fuel ammonia fertilizer plants worldwide. Ammonia cars already exist, but we’d like to see cheap adaptation technology for existing cars, lorries, ships, and even one day, planes.

Green Ammonia Plants, Commercially Available Today

by Trevor Brown

In the last 12 months …

Green ammonia pilot plants began operations in the UK and Japan, and new demonstration plants were announced in Australia, Denmark, Morocco, and the Netherlands (more, yet to be announced, are in development).

Fertilizer company CEOs spoke about how green ammonia fits their corporate strategy. And all four of the global licensors of ammonia technology made it abundantly clear that they are ready and willing to build your green ammonia plant, today.

The QUANT: A Fast Electric car that really Works on a Saltwater solution, and a Battery that never Wears Out.

The Free

Sounds too good to be true, but this car exists already with limited public sales beginning this year (2016). It first came out as the super expensive Quant e-Sportlimosine  prototype and now the Quantino family saloon (see QUANTINO https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5Ic8XI3GlM) . The advantage, for you and the planet,  is you need no oil or electricity, just fill up with 2 ‘cheap salty solutions’. The QUANT is projected to finally cost similar to other electric cars

The Quantino runs on a 'cheap totally non toxic salty solution'.. no burn involved, infinite battery life. In principle you don't even need special filling stations for non toxic fuel. Of course you still have the climate and environment damage from vehicle construction.

Not so long ago, excitement rose to a fevered pitch with the announcement of a budget Tesla car slated to hit…

TED Lesson.. How to save the Planet..suppressed CO2-free fuel exists now, cheaper and safer.

You can now view the first TED LESSON on the Am Veh CO2-Free car here:

see TED lesson here http://ed.ted.com/on/zahZVhlR

Let’s Begin…

A CO2-Free fuel for combustion engines already exists and is cheaper and safer than petroleum products. Ammonia is CO2 FREE (you burn the hydrogen in it) and could save the planet from Climate Change. It’s easily made from CO2-free renewables and new SSAS tech could halve production costs. Let’s demand this technology and STOP fossil fuel subsidies NOW.

How to DUMP Fossil Fuels… Alex Lightman.. CO2-free fuel

The Free

At last a major ‘tech guru’ is in favour of green-NH3, the non-fossil aand CO2-free fuel that has always existed, suppressed by the fossil fuel industry. (See Ted Talk below). We’ve been saying it for years with zero impact. all combustion motors can be run on green NH3, cutting climate destroying gases by 30% and abolishing air pollution, saving millions from an agonizing death.

Ammonia Energy System

Alex Lightman has challenged the oil giants, with

Its a huge advance for green-NH3 (ie.  ammonia from renewables) and comes hard on the heels of Toyota’s CO2-free ammonia prototype sportscar..  and the proposal to convert part…
