>Mission: To promote the implementation of anhydrous ammonia as an affordable, sustainable, carbon-free fuel for transportation and stationary power applications, thereby enhancing economic security, reducing fossil-fuel dependence, and helping save the environment.
That’s the declared mission of the Ammonia Fuel Network, which seeks to implement ammonia (as opposed to hydrogen) as the fuel of the future. AFN says that ammonia is a zero-emissions fuel with a national infrastructure already in place and that it can be easily used in fuel cells. On top of that, it’s non-flammable so it doesn’t conjure up images of an engulfed Hindenburg.
So why haven’t you heard of this seemingly miracle-fuel before? To be honest, we’re not sure either. We’ve contacted the guys behind the AFN and we’ll let you know what they say as soon as we hear it.
