Japan Develops A New Synthetic Ammonia Process That Is Expected To Be Used In Fertilizer Production

- May 09, 2019-

A research team in Japan recently invented a new method for the efficient synthesis of ammonia under normal temperature and pressure using nitrogen and water, which is expected to be used in the production of related fertilizers in the future.

According to reports, ammonia is a compound required for the production of chemical fertilizers. Traditional industrial ammonia needs to use nitrogen and hydrogen, requires high temperature and high pressure reaction conditions, and consumes natural gas and other energy sources. The industry has been hoping to develop new methods for synthesizing ammonia under mild reaction conditions using water instead of hydrogen.

The University of Tokyo research team recently reported on the online edition of the British journal Nature that they have developed a molybdenum catalyst that uses this catalyst together with the reducing agent cesium iodide to efficiently synthesize ammonia using nitrogen and water at normal temperature and pressure.

Researchers say that this ammonia synthesis reaction has high activity and reaction rate. They are working with enterprises to conduct practical research. It is hoped that the research results will provide a new method for a new generation of energy-saving and environmentally friendly ammonia synthesis.
