    Let us know about Ammonia-Hydrogen Engines 

    • The ammonia-hydrogen engine is based on an existing diesel engine that will be modified to run on green ammonia and hydrogen produced from renewable energies.
    • It is easier to transport and store since ammonia has a higher energy density than liquid hydrogen
    • Cracker, a key part of the ammonia-hydrogen engine splits a small part of the ammonia outside the engine into hydrogen and nitrogen.
    •  The ammonia-hydrogen engine is trialled by DB and FFI.
