University of Notre Dame researchers have developed a renewable energy approach for synthesizing ammonia. Ammonia is crucial for the world’s agricultural production because its an essential nitrogen component of fertilizers that support the world’s food and fuel production needs. The industrial Haber-Bosch process developed in the early 1900s for producing ammonia relies on non-renewable fossil […]

Utah State University researchers have announced a light-driven process that uses photochemical energy to replace adenosine triphosphate to convert dinitrogen, the form of nitrogen found in the air, to ammonia fertilizer. All living things require nitrogen for survival, but the world depends on only two known processes to break nitrogen’s ultra-strong bonds to allow conversion […]
