Modular & Distributed NBF Production & Delivery
CASFER Thrust 3 researchers are developing catalytic strategies for the synthesis of NBFs using local nitrogen sources and renewable electricity via distributed, modular reactors.
Researchers are addressing gaps related to
Selectively reduce N-based precursors in complex waste media to increase local NBF production circularity;
Decrease N2-to-ammonia reactor start-up and shutdown times to match the operational availability of intermittent renewable energy;
Develop safe and energy-efficient NBF storage and facile on-demand release methods.
