ARPA-E funding for renewable ammonia synthesis technologies

Last week, ARPA-E announced funding for eight technologies that aim to make ammonia from renewable electricity, air, and water.

The technological pathways being developed include adaptations of the Haber-Bosch process – seeking improvements in catalysts and absorbents – as well as novel electrochemical processes.

Each of these awards must produce an “end-of-project deliverable.” For chemical processes, this will be a “bench scale reactor” that produces >1 kg of ammonia per day; and for electrochemical projects, it will be a “short stack prototype” capable of producing >100 g of ammonia per day.
