TOKYO -- Plant engineering companies IHI and Chiyoda are devising cost-efficient ways of utilizing hydrogen as an energy source -- a potential breakthrough for broader use of the carbon-free energy.
IHI aims to bring online a hydrogen power plant fueled by ammonia around 2020. The system will directly burn ammonia mixed with 20% methane gas for a 20% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. Ammonia is a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen and can be compressed at an ambient temperature, which facilitates transport.
