Ammonia-Fueled Combustion Turbines

Combustion turbines have been shown in past research to be able to operate with ammonia fuel, with some modification of burner design and fuel delivery systems.

Challenges of NOx generation can be addressed, so that such a turbine has a zero carbon footprint as well as zero other deleterious emissions. Although no manufacturers are currently making ammonia turbines, the demand for clean back-up and peaker power generation can make such turbines a valuable alternative.
