Distributed Ammonia Synthesis

This 60-minute webinar describes a research project that takes wind—which is too far from urban areas to be used—and turns it into ammonia used on local farms. This project involves a small plant which raises the question: What will happen to the chemical industry when the plant is not fed from a tanker or pipeline? You’ll learn the answer for corn-based ethanol plants is clear—they are small and scattered because much of the ethanol cost is moving the corn to the plant. You’ll then explore the answer for expensive antibiotics—so little is made will it remain, centralized? And what about other chemical products? By the end of this webinar, you’ll have a vision of a different chemical industry based on scaling down processes to harvest local energy.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Why synthetic ammonia is important
  • New questions raised by small-scale production
  • Scaling down processes to harvest local energy - a look at the research
  • Re-thinking current processes for producing ammonia
