- Proceeding: 2017 AIChE Annual Meeting
- Group: Topical Conference: NH3 Energy+ - Enabling Optimized, Sustainable Energy and Agriculture
Thursday, November 2, 2017 - 1:42pm-2:00pm
The presentation will summarize the development of the demonstration size renewable fuel and fertilizer system on my Iowa farm. Solar power, water, and air are used to make hydrogen and ammonia fuel used to power a modified John Deere 7810 tractor. The ammonia can also be used to fertilize corn cropland. The development of the ammonia reactor will be described and its performance discussed. There are no carbon emissions in either the generation or consumption of the hydrogen and ammonia.
