      Ammonia as a H2 carrier
    » 637.6 KiB - 2,953 hits - December 1, 2008
    Appears to be an independent assessment of the pros and cons of ammonia as a hydrogen carrier / fuel for ICs. Overall fairly favourable - indicates that hydrogen is likely to be far more dangerous as a fuel than ammonia and very hard to transport. States that effectively ammonia can be made to have zero tailpipe emissions and can be used at the same engine efficiency as diesel.

    This paper examines some key differences between battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs), including their relative efficiency for using different forms of energy and the technical and infrastructural challenges associated with their introduction. (If you are interested in this article, you may be interested in the article on ammonia for engines - a much better alternative in some people's eyes - http://tx1.fcomet.com/~claverto/cms/download/159/ or this bio methane article - http://tx1.fcomet.com/~claverto/cms/bio-methane-fuelled-vehicles-john-baldwin-cng-services.html
