Emission free energy dense ammonia power solutions pioneer Amogy Inc announced the successful demonstration of the first-ever ammonia-powered, zero-emissions tractor. The demonstration took place on 25 May 2022 at Advanced Energy Center in the Research & Development Park at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook in New York in US.This tractor demonstration was made possible by the rapid scaling of Amogy’s technology platform following its two funding rounds in 2021, Seed and Series A, which were supported by Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund, AP Ventures, and DCVC. The company has achieved a twenty-fold increase in the power capacity of its technology over the past year. This first heavy-duty vehicle demonstration and scalability of Amogy’s solution underscores the viability of the platform to support the decarbonization of the broader heavy-duty transport sectors, including trucking, shipping, and more.Amogy’s highly-efficient ammonia-to-power technology was successfully integrated into a John Deere mid-size standard tractor. The unique system is comprised of a standard liquid-storage tank and highly efficient ammonia-cracking modules integrated into a hybrid fuel cell system, which can provide consistent primary power for several hours per refueling. Therefore, the pioneering vehicle maintains the functionality and duration requirements operators rely on to support farming tasks, which has never been offered with other alternative energy solutions. The ammonia-powered tractor was driven for separate periods, with a refueling session in between. Refueling a tractor with liquid ammonia is fast and simple, similar to gas or diesel refueling.
