Advancements in Ammonia Synthesis and Catalyst Development: Navigating Future Frontiers

The surge in industrial-scale ammonia production has significantly bolstered grain production, tackling global challenges of hunger and mortality caused by food scarcity.
Green Ammonia Challenges and Power-to-X Technology (June 16, 2023)

A recent study, published on June 16, 2023, in "Nature Synthesis" by University of Cambridge researchers, delves into the technological challenges of green ammonia synthesis. It emphasizes the intermittent and decentralized nature of renewable energy supply as a significant obstacle for green ammonia processes, especially those driven by Power-to-X technology.
Blue Ammonia: A Key Player in Carbon Transition

The characteristics of "blue ammonia" closely align with traditional ammonia production. When coupled with carbon capture and storage technologies, blue ammonia effectively mitigates carbon emissions. Its role in transitioning to lower carbon-intensive alternative products is pivotal.
Global Advancements and Strategic Plans (June 29, 2023)

Global energy giants are actively shaping strategies and competing in the green ammonia market. Recent developments include Denmark and Indonesia's plans for a coupled facility deploying thorium-based molten salt reactors and ammonia production, with a total investment of $4 billion, aiming for an annual output of 1 million tons of ultra-low-emission ammonia. Additionally, on June 29, 2023, BASF and Yara announced plans to construct a world-class blue ammonia production facility with carbon capture capabilities, anticipating an annual total production of 1.2-1.4 million tons of blue ammonia.
Revolutionizing Ammonia Synthesis: Innovative Membrane Reactor (June 5, 2023)

In groundbreaking research on June 5, 2023, researchers from South China University of Technology and Tsinghua University introduced a membrane reactor capable of efficiently electrochemically synthesizing ammonia under ambient pressure and temperature conditions. This innovative reactor integrates the hydrogen purification process with in-situ ammonia synthesis, providing highly active protons for nitrogen reduction reactions.
Cu/CuAu Core/Shell Nanocrystals for Nitrate Electro-Reduction (March 9, 2023)

On March 9, 2023, researchers at the University of Virginia reported the direct solution-phase synthesis of Cu/CuAu core/shell nanocrystals with tunable single-atom alloy (SAA) layers for nitrate electro-reduction to ammonia. This synthesis process is extendable to other Cu/CuM (M = Pt, Pd) systems, with M atoms separated within the copper matrix.
Defect-Rich Nano-Ni Catalyst for Electrochemical Nitrate Reduction (April 21, 2023)

In another significant development on April 21, 2023, researchers from Tongji University utilized electrodeposition to construct defect-rich nano-Ni for highly selective catalysis of electrochemical nitrate reduction reactions (NitRR) under mild conditions, resulting in ammonia synthesis.
Dual-Atomic Iron-Copper Catalyst for Nitrate Reduction (June 19, 2023)

Finally, on June 19, 2023, researchers from the Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Zhejiang University collaboratively developed a dual-atomic iron-copper catalyst for nitrate reduction synthesis of ammonia.
