Evening lectureby Dr. Jimmy A. Faria organised by the Chemische Kring Midden Nederland


Green ammonia synthesis via the Haber–Bosch (HB) process has become a major field of research in the recent years for production of fertilizers and seasonal energy storage due to drastic drop in cost of renewable hydrogen. While the field of catalysis and engineering has worked on this subject for many years, the current process of ammonia synthesis remains essentially unaltered. As a result, current industrial developments on green ammonia are based on the HB process, which can only be economical at exceptionally large scales, limiting implementation on financially strained economies. For green ammonia to become an economic “equalizer” that supports the energy transition around the world, it is essential to facilitate the down-scalability and operational robustness of the process.
