Clean Ammonia Energy Using Photocatalysts – by Rice University

Here’s an article in newsatlas that talks about a photocatalyst developed by Rice University researchers to clean energy from ammonia.

According to the article,

  • Rice University has developed a new, cost-effective photocatalyst using abundant metals like iron and copper.
  • The catalyst can convert ammonia into clean-burning hydrogen and nitrogen gas using light, without requiring heat.
  • It has shown promising efficiency in lab testing, comparable to more expensive precious metal catalysts.
  • The technology has the potential to reduce carbon emissions in the chemical sector and lessen the reliance on precious metals in catalysis.
