Ammonia-based Solution for Hydrogen Fuel Cells

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] ZAP along with technology partner Apollo Energy Systems of Pompano Beach, Florida, announced the successful demonstration of a patented “Ammonia Cracker” technology for use as a method to power zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell cars. Apollo’s Alkaline Fuel Cells, derived from designs used in most major space explorations programs, are Hydrogen Fuel Cells that derive their energy from ammonia. Apollo’s patented Ammonia Cracker breaks the ammonia down into hydrogen to power the fuel cell, which, according to Robert Aronsson, President of Apollo, offers a range cost savings and other advantages over other hydrogen fuel cell solutions.
