Ammonia Energy Conference 2019

Like last year, the Ammonia Energy Conference has two parts: the Topical Conference, consisting of technical presentations, and the Implementation Conference, consisting of closed-door workshops followed by open plenary sessions featuring keynote speeches, panel discussions, and audience debate. Both events are hosted within the AIChE Annual Meeting.

With more than 50 talks scheduled across three days, the Topical Conference offers attendees the opportunity to learn from and network with key technology and project developers. Our speakers represent the full ammonia energy value chain, from sustainable ammonia synthesis to the use of ammonia as a fuel and energy carrier, and will provide insights into both near-term commercial activities and long-term technical potential for ammonia energy.

The Implementation Conference aims to accelerate the adoption of ammonia in a sustainable energy economy, with additional programming exclusively for AEA Members, and workshops that focus on setting the agenda for the Ammonia Energy Association moving forward.

Ammonia Energy Topical Conference

Unlike last year’s one-day Topical Conference, this year’s three-day event allows all of our technical presentations to be longer (18 minutes each plus 5 minutes Q&A). This means that attendees will get a higher quality of engagement with the research being presented, and better opportunities for networking among our international gathering of academics, policy-makers, and industry representatives.

Two highlights of the Topical Conference will be our evening receptions. On Tuesday, November 12, from 6pm to 8pm, we will host our biggest ever Poster Session, showcasing more than 20 research projects from around the world. On Wednesday, November 13, from 6pm to 8pm, we invite all attendees to join our Platinum Reception, with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, to hear our Keynote Speech by Rob Stevens from Yara International ASA, in which he will discuss Decarbonized Ammonia for Food and Energy.

The full schedule of technical presentations follows below.

Ammonia Energy Implementation Conference

This year’s Implementation Conference is also hosted within the AIChE Annual Meeting, meaning that attendees only need to register once for both the Topical Conference and the Implementation Conference, and there is only one venue for all events. Participation in the morning workshops of the Implementation Conference is reserved for Industry Members of the Ammonia Energy Association (learn about Membership).

In the afternoon, everybody is welcome to attend two plenary sessions, which will feature Keynote Speeches by Cédric Philibert, former International Energy Agency senior analyst, and Shigeru Muraki from the Green Ammonia Consortium. Each keynote will be followed by a panel discussion, broadening out into a general audience debate, with contributions welcomed from all attendees.

The full schedule of presentations follows below. Abstracts will be uploaded to this site in the coming weeks, or they can be viewed now at the AIChE Annual Meeting website.
