Siemens Energy has started work in Newcastle, UK, on a new £3.5 million (€4 million) ammonia cracker prototype designed to produce green hydrogen at an industrial scale and help tackle climate change by reducing carbon emissions. This is in development with global resources leader, Fortescue Industries and renewable energy company, Geopura.

The ammonia cracker system will provide the potential to produce green hydrogen at scale, wherever and whenever it is needed. The system will be designed to deliver high-purity hydrogen, suitable for PEM fuel cell use, using FFI’s Metal Membrane Technology (MMT) purification process.

Steve Scrimshaw, VP at Siemens Energy UK & Ireland and a member of the UK government’s hydrogen advisory council says: ‘We have just 13 years to deliver a net-zero electricity grid for the UK. Time is running out and we can’t do this alone. This innovative green ammonia cracker could be a game-changer for scaling up the green hydrogen industry – an important step to drive the energy transition.’
