The editor, Anders Nielsen, is research director with one of the largest industrial catalyst producers. He has compiled a complete reference on all aspects of catalytical ammonia production in industry, from thermodynamics and kinetics to reactor and plant design. One chapter deals with safety aspects of ammonia handling and storage.
Year of fee payment : 4. Effective date : A catalyst active in ammonia synthesis with improved activity and a process for the recovery of useful components from the catalyst. This invention relates to an improved catalyst active in ammonia production from ammonia synthesis gas. Furthermore, it relates to the recovery of useful catalytic components from a spent catalyst. During the 20th century, the production of ammonia has increased dramatically to put ammonia among the most important industrial chemicals in terms of tonnage.
Ammonia is produced by the reaction of hydrogen and nitrogen, dubbed the "Haber-Bosch process". Depending on the feedstock that is being used, the two main hydrogen production processes used in ammonia production are:. The type of feedstock used to produce ammonia plays a significant role in the amount of energy used and CO 2 produced. The production of ammonia from natural gas is the least energy intensive, and production with coal, which is predominantly used in China, generally has the highest energy consumption and CO 2 emissions. Globally about 72 percent of ammonia is produced from natural gas using the steam reforming process. Other feedstocks for hydrogen production in ammonia plants include heavy fuel oil, naphtha, coke oven gas and refinery gas.

The future of a carbon-free society relies on the alignment of the intermittent production of renewable energy with our continuous and increasing energy demands. Long-term energy storage in molecules with high energy content and density such as ammonia can act as a buffer versus short-term storage e. In this paper, we demonstrate that the Haber—Bosch ammonia synthesis loop can indeed enable a second ammonia revolution as energy vector by replacing the CO 2 intensive methane-fed process with hydrogen produced by water splitting using renewable electricity. These modifications demand a redefinition of the conventional Haber—Bosch process with a new optimisation beyond the current one which was driven by cheap and abundant natural gas and relaxed environmental concerns during the last century. Indeed, the switch to electrical energy as fuel and feedstock to replace fossil fuels e.

Ammonia is one of the most highly produced inorganic chemicals. There are numerous large-scale ammonia production plants worldwide, producing a total of million tonnes of nitrogen equivalent to million tonnes of ammonia in Ammonia is also used for the production of plastics, fibers, explosives, nitric acid via the Ostwald process and intermediates for dyes and pharmaceuticals.
The presence of alkaline earth or alkali metals is found to be essential for accelerating the reaction rate for the ammonia synthesis process. TEM images reveal the local structure of the catalysts obtained upon pyrolysis of the metal phthalocyanine precursor, with metal nanoparticles 5—50 nm confined in a nitrogen-doped carbon mesoporous matrix, where the alkali metal promoters are located on the top of the iron nanoparticles but also on the carbon support. Furthermore, this kinetic analysis suggests that the rate-determining step shifts from nitrogen activation to NH x formation, which only few catalysts have achieved.
