- FuelPositive Corp. is a Canadian-based clean energy solutions innovator developing a means of using green ammonia as a non-carbon polluting fuel
- The company was recently featured in a broadcast by NetworkNewsAudio (“NNA”) that highlights FuelPositive’s advances in making green ammonia more portable, more cost-efficient and ultimately more power generating than environmentalist darling hydrogen
- The broadcast notes that traditional ammonia production typically creates significant pollution, but that the key advantage of FuelPositive’s Phase 2 Hydrogen-Ammonia Synthesizer is that it eliminates the pollution factor and makes carbon free ammonia easy to produce where needed as a transportation fuel
- The broadcast highlights the results of FuelPositive’s decision to commission a study of Canada’s off-peak green electricity capacity, showing that the country has sufficient energy to utilize green ammonia as a carbon-free fuel for all of Canada’s passenger and commercial freight needs
The dedication of Canadian-based FuelPositive (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTCQB: NHHHF) toward building renewable energy technology through manufacturing, licensing, partnership and acquisition opportunities, is the focus of a recent audio broadcast featuring news about FuelPositive’s decision to commission an analysis of Canada’s green off-peak electricity capacity, measuring the Canadian transportation sector’s fuel needs and carbon emissions.
The NNA broadcast notes that ammonia produced in a carbon-free manner can provide fuel for commercial and public transportation and do it in a way that promotes responsible climate policy.
“Many people don’t know it, but planes, trains, ships, trucks and other vehicles can be converted to run on ammonia – just as easily as they can be converted from gasoline and diesel to run on propane”, FuelPositive CEO Ian Clifford states in the news release about the broadcast (https://ibn.fm/FEOjZ). “The transportation sector just didn’t see a benefit to switching to ammonia until now, because the production of traditional ammonia results in massive carbon emissions. But, when you use our carbon-free NH3 made from green electricity rather than traditional ammonia, it means we can move people around and transport goods with no pollution.”
In addition, ammonia presents advantages over the generally preferred green energy solutions that rely on hydrogen. Hydrogen can be stored physically as either a gas or a liquid, however the storage and transportation process is complicated because such storage typically requires high-pressure tanks and cryogenic temperatures. Therefore, improvements in the technology necessary to store and transport hydrogen are generally considered key to advancing its use as a renewable solution (https://ibn.fm/om7zd).
Ammonia, however, is easy to store and transport using existing infrastructure. Its chemical symbol, NH3, is often referred to as hydrogen nitride instead of ammonia in recognition of its nitrogen and three hydrogen atoms. That structure makes ammonia the ideal carrier for hydrogen — in addition to the portability of FuelPositive’s technology, the end user can convert the green ammonia back to its hydrogen element to be used to produce electricity in a hydrogen fuel cell.
It’s also much less expensive to manufacture carbon free ammonia than pure hydrogen by volume, according to the company.
FuelPositive’s carbon-free production process also eliminates fertilizer-related carbon emissions in the agriculture sector. Currently, the agriculture industry remains the largest user of ammonia. Over 80 percent of traditional ammonia is used as fertilizer.
The analysis by emissions reduction and carbon credit specialist Andre Mech that FuelPositive commissioned found that Canada has enough off-peak green electricity to produce carbon free ammonia to fuel 63 percent of all the passenger cars, light trucks, passenger aviation, buses, light rail, motorcycles, freight trucking, freight aviation, rail, marine and other sector vehicles in the country using non-polluting, carbon-free NH3 as a fuel.
The analysis also found that Canada has enough off-peak green electricity to produce carbon free ammonia to fuel 100 percent of the passenger and commercial freight needs of its industries.
