Hosted by the NH3 Fuel Association.
NH3 Energy+ is the most affordable, efficient path to a hydrogen economy. This versatile chemical also can be used as one of the most cost-effective means to store and transport, excess and stranded renewable energy, a key issue for greater market penetration for wind, solar, and other intermittent renewable resources. NH3 can provide up to a 5X increase in agricultural production; is an extremely effective, environmentally friendly refrigerant; is the most practical means of reducing NOx emissions; and is a very effective disinfectant/cleaning product. The objective of this symposium is to introduce the impressive story of NH3 Energy+ to a wider audience. Read more
