For 100 years, we have made ammonia with the Haber-Bosch process, almost always using a fossil fuel feedstock. Recently, though, government policy, academic innovation, commercial opportunity, and human morality have combined to spur the development of new, “green” ammonia manufacturing processes: sustainable, low-carbon technologies.
These new synthesis methods augur a future in which, instead of the single, over-riding drive toward the economies of scale associated with Haber-Bosch, an array of different feedstocks, uses, and business models will support a multiplicity of competing technologies serving multiple markets.
This presentation aims to introduce the factors affecting the appetite for commercialization and adoption of different ammonia synthesis technologies (nascent and mature), to differentiate between the various technological pathways, and to illustrate their respective advantages and market applications.
