In this episode, we delve into the fascinating world of clean energy with Maciek Lukawski, VP of Strategy and Business Development at Amogy. Amogy is pioneering the use of ammonia as a clean energy source, contributing significantly to the global journey towards Net Zero. Based in Brooklyn, New York, with expanding operations in Houston, Norway, and Singapore, Amogy is at the forefront of sustainable energy innovation.

Key Highlights:
Ammonia’s Role in Decarbonization: Amogy focuses on decarbonization through ammonia utilization, and converting ammonia into power using an integrated solution.

Ammonia as an Alternative Fuel: Ammonia is emerging as a cost-efficient, highly energy-dense vector for hydrogen, offering a practical solution for transporting large volumes of hydrogen globally.

Amogy’s Growth and Expansion: Starting less than three years ago in Brooklyn, Amogy has rapidly expanded, with significant growth in Houston and new ventures in Norway and Singapore.

Global Ammonia Production and Usage: Ammonia, primarily used as a fertilizer, is the second most commonly produced chemical worldwide, with a production of about 200 million metric tons annually.

Applications in Maritime Shipping and Beyond: Amogy’s technology is particularly suited for hard-to-decarbonize sectors like maritime shipping, offering a viable alternative to traditional fuels.

The Technology Behind Amogy’s Power Packs: Amogy’s innovative approach involves cracking ammonia into hydrogen and nitrogen, then using fuel cells to generate electricity, all contained within modular power packs.

Houston as a Strategic Location: The choice of Houston for Amogy’s first manufacturing facility is influenced by the city’s rich pool of knowledge in the energy sector and its business-friendly environment.

Future Prospects and Challenges: Amogy is navigating the commercialization phase, securing pre-orders for their product, and addressing challenges in the rapidly evolving clean energy landscape.
Join us in this enlightening conversation with Maciek Lukawski as we explore how Amogy is harnessing the power of ammonia to pave the way for a cleaner, more sustainable future.
