HIghly efficient POwer production by green Ammonia total oxidation in a membrane Reactor
The HiPowAR (HIghly efficient POwer production by green Ammonia total oxidation in a membrane Reactor) project aims at developing a power generation system that adopts a novel membrane reactor where ammonia is oxidized at high pressure using oxygen separated from air through the permeable membrane, without the need for air compression. The project focuses on a breakthrough in the direct conversion of ammonia into electricity, which is driving the acceptance of ammonia as a synthetic fuel without CO2 emissions. The membrane reactor is based on Mixed Ionic Electronic Conductor (MIEC) membranes and the plant can achieve higher efficiencies in electricity generation than internal combustion engines or steam generators.
