Ammonia-Hydrogen Engine by Deutsche Bahn and Fortescue : Green Railways

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.
