Case Study: Better Management of Boil-off in LNG, ammonia and liquid hydrogen storage

BoilFAST is a software tool recently developed by the FEnEx CRC, designed initially to predict and manage the boil-off gases generated during LNG storage and transport. It has now been extended to similarly quantify boil-off gases generated by other cryogenic liquids central to the export of renewable energy, such as liquid hydrogen and ammonia. Read…

Project Announcement: Direct Ammonia Reduction of Iron Ore

Ammonia (NH3) is an excellent hydrogen (H2) carrier and a practically effective means of exporting Australia’s rich renewable energy resources. Ammonia (NH3) may also be used as a carbon-free reductant of iron ore for the production of iron. This project seeks to research and develop the use of ammonia (NH3) as a reliable renewable reductant…
