Plasma Technology used to Produce Environmentally-Friendly Fertiliser

Belgian scientists have found a CO2-free way to produce ammonia with plasma technology. This will enable farmers to produce environmentally friendly fertilizer themselves.

At one point back in the eighties of the last century, ammonia was the main villain in the environment. It was partly to blame for acid rain. Nowadays, scientists see it as a green energy source because you can make it easily and cheaply. Belgian scientists have developed a new method for the CO2-free production of ammonia.

Ammonia is a very important chemical building block. But it is also one of the main contributors to CO2 emissions. … Read More »
