RAL proposes new efficient and low-cost process to crack ammonia for hydrogen using sodium amide; transportation applications

Green Car Congress

RAL researchers are proposing a new process for the decomposition of ammonia to release hydrogen that involves the stoichiometric decomposition and formation of sodium amide from Na metal. Researchers at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in the UK are proposing a new type of process that is an alternative to the use of rare or transition metal catalysts for the cracking of ammonia (NH 3 ) to produce hydrogen.
