The United Kingdom is currently focusing on building the new renewable energy projects for the purpose of tackling the increasing pressures of the fossil fuel energy crisis and influence on the national gas markets of Russia.
As wind, solar and nuclear power have often touted as the major companies in generating renewable energy and a new startup has been trying for creating an efficient source of the power by using the fertiliser. The Engineers at the Science and Technology facilities Council (STFC) have also been developing a green ammonia plant that can also efficiently generating ammonia by using only the intermittent renewable energy as the source of the power.
As ammonia has been traditionally used as a fertiliser and the researchers are now exploring the uses as a carrier for the hydrogen, which has been tipped for being the future replacement for the natural gas.
This project has also been backed by the government of the United Kingdom and is having received 284,000 pounds in the funding through the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s (BEIS) Net Zero Innovation Portfolio Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 Competition, which is aiming to create a complete and ready-made design for the industry.
According to the statement of STFC, as it is looking to set for playing a significant role for the purpose of decarbonizing the industries including shipping, electric vehicle charging and non-electrified rail and also fuelling the alternative for the current power stations fired by methane.
