NH3 from Renewable-source Electricity, Water, and Air: Technology Options and Economics Modeling

Bill Leighty, The Leighty Foundation
11th Annual NH3 Fuel Conference, September 23, 2014

Abstract

Our company, Alaska Applied Sciences, Inc. has developed a simple cost modeling tool based on capital recovery factor (CRF), for a client, to analyze, “Under what conditions will the technology in question produce NH3, at a plant gate cost competitive with NH3 from extant sources, from renewable-source electricity, water, and air?” We will report the results of several case assumptions based on Electrolysis plus Haber-Bosch technology.

We will also present a catalog of apparently credible technologies for synthesizing NH3 from renewables-source electricity, water, and air.
