ammonia (NH3) production

Scalable ammonia production and cracking technologies

Technology

We are scaling up technologies to make and use carbon-free ammonia fuel. Rapid Ramp is a variable-rate ammonia production process engineered into a modular plant design. Prometheus Fire is a lower temperature, high flow ammonia cracking process that allows ammonia to be used like natural gas, but with no CO2 emissions.

With our Rapid Ramp NH3 systems
CLEAN POWER + AIR + WATER = CLEAN FUEL

  • Clean power, air, and water are combined to make clean fuel
  • Fuel costs are stabilized
  • Mass-produced modules speed installation and reduce project risk
  • Modular capacity is deployed to match market demand
  • Patents granted and pending in jurisdictions worldwide
