Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The Danish Energy Agency has sponsored a 4 million € project for production of ammonia synthesis gas and the use of ammonia by Solid Oxide Cells. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate a novel process for generation of ammonia synthesis gas without an air separation unit by means of Solid Oxide Electrolyzer Cells as well as using ammonia as a fuel for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells. The synthesis gas generation plant will be a 50 kW unit. The SOFC unit test will be carried out on one stack corresponding to 1.5 kW. In parallel socio- as well as techno-economic studies will be performed on ammonia as an energy vector for storing excess electricity. The paper and presentation will provide details about the new synthesis gas production process and present experimental results from the ammonia to power part of the project.
