Posco to Develop Technology for Turning Ammonia into Hydrogen

South Korea steel maker Posco, Korea Institute of Science and Technology and Research Institute of Industrial Science & Technology has signed an agreement

South Korea steel maker Posco, Korea Institute of Science and Technology and Research Institute of Industrial Science & Technology has signed an agreement to collaborate on mass producing hydrogen from ammonia at Posco. Ammonia, which is chemically composed of hydrogen and nitrogen, is much easier to liquefy than hydrogen and thus can be used as a transporting agent. But to realize this, technology is required to turn hydrogen into ammonia for transportation and turn it back to hydrogen to use as fuel. While technology for the former exists, the latter is underdeveloped, which is why Posco has teamed up with the research institutes.

Posco has been focusing on hydrogen as its next growth engine. It aims to complete the entire value chain from producing hydrogen to establishing infrastructure for its storage and supply.
