Versatile and direct e-fuel and fertiliser generation from renewable electricity: VERGE
The VERGE project will develop a disruptive and distributed renewable energy technology that will directly utilise intermittent renewable energy to produce liquid ammonia from air and water.
Synthesising ammonia with renewable energy can both replace the current fertiliser production and facilitate the emerging eFUEL market by providing an energy carrier, e.g. for maritime.
The VERGE project will be carried out by a consortium from five European countries, composed of two universities, a tech transfer institute, two large companies, a LCA consultancy and last but not least, an SME for future scale-up and exploitation.
Each consortium member has demonstrated excellence in its fields, with high impact publications, exceptional customer service and a history of international project participation.
