Abstract Information :

Is ammonia the new LNG for power generation? Ammonia is a hydrogen derivative that is readily transportable as a liquid with a high energy density. Like LNG, ammonia is combustible on gas turbines when using specially designed burners. However, unlike LNG green ammonia can be produced from green hydrogen and renewable power as a green e-fuel at scale. Direct firing of pure ammonia on gas turbines is possible, or partial cracking can make the combustion easier and enable very low NOx and N2O emissions. Co-firing of ammonia on coal-fired power plants is also being demonstrated at GW-scale. Any hydrogen-fired gas turbines have successfully been tested by GE, Rolls Royce and many others. The flue gas emissions must be monitored and treated to minimise NOx, N2O and other pollutant and GHG emissions to atmosphere. This paper will expose the market drivers that will see a steep ramp-up in hydrogen and ammonia combustion for power generation. It will also explore the CEM challenges and potential solutions.
