FuelPositive Corporation (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTCQB: NHHHF) (the “Company” or “FuelPositive”) announces third-party certification of initial ammonia output. FuelPositive, a leading Green Ammonia company, has successfully completed a pivotal milestone with its commercial model FP300 system start-up and activation of catalyst, making the FP300 the first decentralized, containerized, operational Green Ammonia system in the world.
Over the past two weeks of operation and evaluation, the system operated flawlessly at maximum activation temperatures and pressures. The Company ensured its internal and industry safety protocols and risk mitigation practices were adhered to at every step.
Five samples of produced ammonia were collected at random times during the evaluation period. The samples were collected at the takeoff point of the systems separator and sent to Ortech Consulting Inc., a third-party testing laboratory in Toronto, Canada.
The third-party testing laboratory, Ortech Consulting Inc., confirmed FuelPositive’s internal mass spectrometer readings, indicating that each random sample of anhydrous ammonia was exactly on target. The results were consistent throughout the samples. Both the conversion rates and volume output exceeded the Company’s expectations.
Nelson Leite, Chief Operating Officer and Director, stated, “We are excited to report that we have completed a key initial validation of our full-scale ammonia pilot system. For this initial evaluation period, to follow safety protocols, we ran one converter at 50% catalyst density, with a set target of anhydrous ammonia output. The results, which were internally and third-party validated, confirmed that our target conversion rates and volume output of anhydrous ammonia were exceeded by 17%.”
Nelson Leite continued, “The next step for FuelPositive, currently underway, is to run the system at full catalyst density across all five converters to achieve the final stages of system validation. Once this step is completed, it will be third-party validated and disclosed. A Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) is the planned final step before farm readiness.”
Ian Clifford, Chief Executive Officer and Chair, stated, “At this watershed moment, with great gratitude and pride, we celebrate our team for the successful initial output of anhydrous ammonia, making the FuelPositive FP-300 the first decentralized, containerized, commercial-scale system of its kind. This is the moment in the evolution of the Company we have all been working towards and we are overjoyed to share this news with all our supporters today.”
Ian Clifford continued, “Everyone involved has been working tirelessly over the last several years to bring FuelPositive’s new technology from concept to commercialization. We are very proud to have successfully navigated and overcome Covid-related supply chain issues, challenging global capital markets and various delays brought on by regulatory approvals.”
Ian Clifford concluded, “The production of traditional gray ammonia is one of the most polluting manufacturing and distribution processes on the planet;1 paradoxically, ammonia, as a nitrogen fertilizer, is needed to feed our ever-growing world population. FuelPositive understands global food security, and, as a result, we made conscious choices to lead toward a sustainable future in agriculture and other critical sectors. This is why FuelPositive’s decentralized Green Ammonia system and business model stands alone, reframing the status quo of a multi-billion-dollar commodity industry.”
FuelPositive is a Canadian technology company committed to providing commercially viable and sustainable, “cradle to cradle” clean technology solutions, including an on-farm/onsite, containerized Green Ammonia (NH3) production system that eliminates carbon emissions from the production of Green Ammonia.
By focusing on technologies that are clean, sustainable, economically advantageous and realizable, the Company aims to help mitigate climate change, addressing unsustainable agricultural practices through innovative technology and practical solutions that can be implemented now. The FuelPositive on-farm/onsite, containerized Green Ammonia production system is designed to produce pure, anhydrous ammonia for multiple applications, including fertilizer for farming, fuel for grain drying and internal combustion engines, a practical alternative for fuel cells and a solution for grid storage. Green Ammonia is also considered a key enabler of the hydrogen economy.
