Air Liquide Paves The Way For Ammonia Conversion Into Hydrogen With New Cracking Technology

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Central.

These two paragraphs outline the story.

Air Liquide announces the construction of an industrial scale ammonia (NH3) cracking pilot plant in the port of Antwerp, Belgium. When transformed into ammonia, hydrogen can be easily transported over long distances. Using innovative technology, this plant will make it possible to convert, with an optimized carbon footprint, ammonia into hydrogen (H2).

With this cracking technology, Air Liquide will further contribute to the development of hydrogen as a key enabler of the energy transition.

I think this could be very significant, in the development of hydrogen as an industrial fuel for heavy energy users.

  1. As engineer I am concerned that there is significant inefficiencies with hydrogen including manufacture, storage and during conversion to actual work. In addition there is are serious problems from leakage causing global warming. See :-
