Federal Funding: A Vote of Confidence for the First Operational, Containerized Green Ammonia System in the World.
FuelPositive Corporation (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTCQB: NHHHF) (the “Company” or “FuelPositive”) announced that it will receive a funding grant of up to $1.9 million through the Research and Innovation Stream of the Agriculture Clean Technology (ACT) Program, delivered by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC).
AAFC has made this significant commitment to FuelPositive’s “Green NH3 Demonstration Phase Project” in support of the commercialization of the FP300 Green Ammonia system.
The funding provided through the ACT Program will help the Company gather the information needed to continue to adapt its technology to the commercial needs of farmers. The Green Ammonia Demonstration Phase consists of building and testing three Green Ammonia demonstration systems. Each system represents an improvement to the intellectual property and technological advancement over the previous system, bringing the Company closer to achieving its efficient and sustainable, large-scale production objectives.
Ammonia is essential for global food security. Today, approximately 80% of the ammonia produced goes towards the world's fertilizer needs.1 While ammonia is vital to feeding the world’s growing population, the current ammonia industry, which primarily produces grey ammonia, is highly carbon-intensive. As the world strives to achieve global food security utilizing grey ammonia fertilizers, it simultaneously pollutes the environment needed to grow food. This dilemma, in addition to unpredictable pricing and supply uncertainty, has frustrated and confounded farmers and governments alike.
Until now, grey ammonia production was exclusively produced with fossil fuels. As a result, for every tonne of grey ammonia produced, 1.8 to 2.7 tonnes of harmful greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are released into the atmosphere.2 Grey ammonia is then transported, often across continents, oceans, countries and cities, and finally to a distributor, before finding its way to each customer’s location. This current distribution process adds additional cost and substantial GHG emissions to an already carbon-intensive grey ammonia production process.
FuelPositive’s decentralized Green Ammonia production takes fossil fuels out of the equation. FuelPositive’s Green Ammonia system consists of a nitrogen generator to produce nitrogen from the air, an electrolyzer to produce hydrogen and oxygen from water and a patent-pending Green Ammonia synthesis converter that operates with sustainable sources of electricity, eliminating the need for fossil fuels.
