An Overview of Novel Hydrogen and Ammonia Production Research at CERL

An Overview of Novel Hydrogen and Ammonia Production Research at CERL

During the past decade we have been doing cutting-edge research on the development, modeling, analysis, building and testing of novel hydrogen and ammonia production systems at the Clean Energy Research Laboratory in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science of UOIT. These systems are essentially non-fossil fuels based and sustainable for the targeted hydrogen economy and offer carbon-free solutions for the province in specific and the world at large. For hydrogen production, the research primarily focuses on thermochemical and hybrid cycles, photoelectrolysis, pohotocatalysis, and photoelectrochemical processes and related technologies. In regards to ammonia production, the focus is essentially put on electrolysis, gasification and electrochemical based systems. Such systems and related technologies are developed to be brought to the commercialization phase for the market. This particular presentation will discuss all these hydrogen and ammonia production systems and related technologies as well as their applications in various sectors, ranging from transportation to industrial.
