Methane pyrolysis (ammonia)


Technology Description

The process involves using very high temperature heat provided by electrical plasma to split methane into its constituent hydrogen and carbon atoms, without burning it. This is used to produce carbon black and can be used to produce hydrogen. While carbon black production through methane pyrolysis has been applied in initial commercial plants, several projects are working towards using methane pyrolysis to produce hydrogen and potentially using this hydrogen to produce ammonia. While some are already planning to use the hydrogen to produce ammonia, for others the intended use of hydrogen is not yet determined.
