Cracking Ammonia: Whitepaper Registration

Whitepaper Registration:
Cracking Ammonia

The AEA intends to publish a whitepaper that will provide an accessible and authoritative introduction to the concept of cracking ammonia in the context of a sustainable economy.
This public document will contain an overview of available and in-development technologies, describe the market applications they can address, and provide a robust literature review as a resource for further information. The whitepaper will be illustrated with industry case studies that demonstrate relevant technologies and applications, and it will contain techno-economic data that can support the integration of ammonia cracking into energy systems modelling, policy development, and investment planning.


Working Group Establishment

The AEA is establishing a Cracking Ammonia Working Group, which will be responsible for directing the AEA staff and academic partners who will write this report. The Working Group will define the structure and content of the report, oversee the development of the report, and provide final approval of the report and the conclusions and positions it contains. Working Group participants may also wish to contribute text, images, and data, and may want to have a role in disseminating the finished report in public.

All AEA Members are entitled to participate in this working group and external experts will be invited to contribute as appropriate. The Working Group will disband upon completion of the report, estimated to be before the end of October 2022.

Working Schedule
All Working Group input can be provided through e-mail or via direct engagement with AEA staff, but the workplan is structured around five Working Group meetings, with the following proposed schedule:


  • Meeting 1: Kick-off and Project Definition. Late September
  • Meeting 2: Data sets and initial conclusions. Late October.
  • Meeting 3: First Draft. Early December.
  • Meeting 4: Final draft and launch plan. Early January.
