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.
