The global race to net zero is underway and the opportunities within it are plentiful.
In a secular shift that necessitates innovation, however, it’s easy to mistake hype over flashy new tech as “the next big thing”, only to learn that the hype was the only real thing about it.
Today, we are featuring a green energy company that’s delivering real innovation and leading the global clean energy revolution by leveraging green ammonia to decarbonize and disrupt traditional sectors.
Let’s dive into AmmPower 👇
👉 Why Green Ammonia?
👉 IAMM: A Paradigm Shift for Agriculture
👉 Other AmmPower Investment Highlights
👉 Bottom Line
Despite its potential and ability to dominate renewable energy headlines, hydrogen has its limitations, not the least of which are problems with handling and storage.
These issues make it both costly and unsafe.
Liquid ammonia, on the other hand, has 1.8x the volumetric energy density of liquid hydrogen (whose density is too low to be used as fuel for long-distance travel), boils at -33 °C (compared to hydrogen’s -253 °C requirement), and—for equal volumes—actually contains more hydrogen in its liquid form than liquid hydrogen does.
The advantages don’t stop there.
Ammonia holds 9x the energy of Li-Ion batteries, is less flammable, easier to transport, and is more cost-effective.
The problem, however, is that 98% of the world’s ammonia—including 92% of US production—is manufactured from fossil fuels.
This is where green ammonia comes in to save the day (and eventually the world—literally).
By using water (as opposed to coal, natural gas, or methane) to acquire hydrogen through electrolysis (as opposed to steam reforming), the result is a zero-carbon process that creates oxygen as a by-product.
These qualities make green ammonia:
👉 The best alternative maritime fuel to power cargo ships
👉 The best way to move hydrogen on a global scale
👉 The best green fertilizer for the agricultural industry with the highest nitrogen content
All three of these use cases are exciting and are currently being employed by today’s featured company, but one of these is particularly vulnerable to major disruption.
Approximately 50% of the global food supply relies on ammonia-based fertilizer.
By 2028, it’s estimated that 80% of US ammonia sales will be used for agriculture.
There’s nothing wrong with that, of course: ammonia is a stable nitrogen fertilizer ready for plant uptake that does not realize carbon dioxide (CO2) gas.
The issue lies with (every single step of) the traditional ammonia supply chain.
From raw materials (fossil fuels) to production (ammonia factory) to distribution (rail, tanker truck, pipeline), CO2 is being emitted at every stop ammonia makes prior to its arrival into the hands of those who need it most: farmers.
This process is estimated to account for 1.8% of the world’s CO2 emissions.
It’s also a process that’s about to be permanently shortened…and decarbonized.
AmmPower, a clean energy company active in all facets of green ammonia technology, is positioned to disrupt agriculture forever by decentralizing ammonia production with new game-changing proprietary technology.
The IAMM Unit (Independent Ammonia Making Machine) is a modular, self-contained unit that produces ammonia fertilizer from only water, air, and green power.
Without getting too technical, AmmPower has developed a containerized ammonia synthesizer using the Haber-Bosch process and its own secret sauce to combine the hydrogen from an electrolyzer with nitrogen from the air to create ammonia.
What this means—in plain speak—is efficient, reliable, consistent, and economically viable ammonia production on-site, all while reducing or eliminating upstream CO2 emissions.
More specifically, it:
👉 Enables independence from volatile natural gas & oil prices
👉 Eliminates the risk of seasonal fertilizer availability
👉 Eliminates supply-chain transportation issues & delays
👉 Requires a one-time engineering cost (vs. high overhead for traditional installations)
👉 Is economically feasible for the user
AmmPower’s in-house design, manufacturing, assembly, and testing labs have also enabled it to decrease the capital expenditures (CapEx) required for localized ammonia production .
In fact, the IAMM can create 4 metric tons of green ammonia per day using 50% less CapEx than the industry benchmark.
This makes IAMM’s output the perfect size for disrupting the agricultural fertilizer space.
Furthermore, its modular, stackable design means it has the potential to break the rule of the economy of scale.
With IAMM’s sales cycle beginning this quarter (Q4 2022) and negotiations for the sale and delivery of the first units already underway, this period marks the beginning of a paradigm shift in agriculture.
Not only is AmmPower poised to disrupt the agriculture industry, but it’s also positioned to play a key role in the secular green energy transition on two other fronts as well.
The company holds an MOU (memorandum of understanding) with Brazil’s Porto Central to build out large-scale facilities which will—when operational—be a major global green energy hub receiving the world’s largest and most modern ships.
With the planned 4,000-tonne-per-day green ammonia facility, AmmPower will service both the shipping industry as well as Brazil’s marketplace for fertilizer.
Currently, the company is in negotiations to build other large-scale facilities in an additional three key global locations.
It has recently worked with an EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) to complete its pre-feasibility study and created site layout plans for both 4000 mtpd and 2000 mtpd green ammonia facility designs.
As we mentioned above, ammonia is the best and most efficient carrier of hydrogen.
“Cracking” is the dissociation process to extract the green hydrogen from green ammonia, once it’s been transported from a location rich in green energy to a location poor in green energy..
Using proprietary catalyst technology, AmmPower has developed a cracking technology unit that performs this extraction process at lower costs and higher efficiency.
After recently successfully performing a demo in which the system achieved close to 100% conversion, the company is confident it has the tech and the manpower to commercialize this critical “cracking” process as early as next year.
The development and advancement of clean energy is a secular trend that, within it, includes game-changing technologies right alongside pipedream “innovations”.
Our job is to dissect and analyze opportunities in the space to separate the former from the latter.
As a leader in the development of green ammonia offering a unique mix of project development, engineering, research, and discovery of solutions, AmmPower falls firmly in the “game-changing” column.
With billion-dollar investments in future management to revolutionize the shipping & transportation industries and a distributed, cost-effective green ammonia production unit that empowers key agricultural stakeholders, AmmPower is set to decarbonize and disrupt traditional sectors forever.
