Ammonia Production

Our research is focused on the production of low-carbon ammonia by combining membrane reactor technology with carbon capture. A membrane reactor makes it possible to perform methane reforming with steam at much lower operating conditions compared to conventional reactors. In addition, this technology has the potential to combine reaction, purification, and separation in a single operating unit which can significantly reduce the capital and operating expenses through process intensification. The produced ammonia may be used directly in fertilizers, or the hydrogen produced may be used directly as a low-carbon energy resource.
