According to an article in Science Magazine, over $60M worth of ammonia is produced around the world. In fact, a vast majority of NH3 is manufactured as fertilizer, and its potential as a renewable energy source has only begun to be noticed in recent years. Curiously, the density as an energy-producing source is almost twice as much as that of liquid hydrogen. This places ammonia in the forefront of potential contenders to fossil fuels, next to renewables like wind, solar or geothermal energy.
Industrywise, the pandemic has also led to other challenges related to lockdown measures that caused gas turbine equipment maintenance to be deferred. Despite the drop in demand, the demand remains and if turbomachinery equipment isn’t maintained properly, it will eventually lead to an increase in failures. Temp-Pro advocates for maintaining temperature measurement devices as a precaution, even during these trying times, to prevent any challenges from becoming a threat to gas turbine operators and production schedules.
Green Hydrogen is the colloquial name given to hydrogen generated from water—one of the most widely available sources in the world. The concept of using water as a power source has long been touted as one with nearly unlimited possibilities. Using a chemical process that separates the Hydrogen molecules from H20, Green Hydrogen is produced with relative ease compared to that of labor-intensive fossil fuels—such as oil and gas.
