Largest Ammonia Cracking Project Opens In UK

Ammogen consortium partners recently gathered at Tyseley Energy Park (TEP) to mark the launch of what is claimed to be the world’s largest ammonia to hydrogen conversion project, which will deliver 200kg per day of transport-grade hydrogen.

The project will use ammonia as a vector for transporting hydrogen globally, developing a novel Ammonia cracker and purification technology to convert ammonia to hydrogen.

The project also aims to position ammonia cracking within the UK political thinking through demonstration and crystallise follow-on opportunities to unlock trade corridors between the UK and the emerging global hydrogen market.

In collaboration with the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), Gemserv, H2SITE, Equans, YARA, and the University of Birmingham, the Ammogen Consortium team are dedicated to driving forward hydrogen fuel supply chains in the UK and worldwide.

This transformative technology is an important piece in the hydrogen supply chain and provides an important link for meeting the growing global hydrogen demand using ammonia as a medium for shipping hydrogen.
