Most existing combustion engines that use ammonia as engine fuel typically require a combustion promoter (i.e., a second fuel such as gasoline, hydrogen, diesel, etc.) for ignition, operation at low engine loads and/or high engine speed. In other words, one option is to use a liquid combustion promoter NH3 is technically non-flammable (in liquid form), has high auto-ignition temp (630 C), and low reactivity. (Flame speed of NH3 ~ 6-8 cm/s, CH4 ~ 40 cm/s, H2 ~ 140-150 cm/s) NH3 is a source of NOx in flames. NH3 is a potential contaminant, especially for marine life (e.g., 97% efficiency may not be enough • Demonstrated ammonia combustion with D2 and B100 2.

In circumstances wheres expe-rience a high level of ammonia slip, the excess un-reacted ammonia can contribute to increased corrosion, fly ash con-tamination, increased formation of ammonium salts on the air pre-heater and other downstream surfaces an In recent years, ammonia (NH 3) combustion has attracted great attentions due to the zero-carbon nature and well-established production, transportation and storage infrastructure of NH 3 [ 2, 3 ], and has been tested in gas turbines and internal combustion engines Ammonia is anticipated to be a hydrogen carrier with high hydrogen content.

Ammonia combustion features high NO x emission and poor stability. It is well known that plasma can enhance hydrocarbon combustion and flame stability; however, NO x formation is promoted simultaneously. There are no experimental studies on plasma-assisted ammonia combustion in the literature to the authors' knowledge Ammonia has been used occasionally in the past as fuel for internal combustion engines and fuel cells [ 33 ]. The hydrogen density embedded in liquid ammonia (108 kg H 2 /m 3) at 293 K and 8.6 bars is 4 times higher than most advanced storage methods in metal hydrides (25 kg H 2 /m 3) [ 34 ]

Credit: CC0 Public Domain. One way to reduce flight shame may lie in a ring of flames. And in the gas that's generated in an outhouse. The whole world is eager to have a more environmentally friendly way to fly In order to solve the difficult ignition problem of ammonia, it is a common way to mix ammonia with traditional fuels using in internal combustion engines such as gasoline, diesel, LPG, CNG, ethanol, methanol, hydrogen, etc. Figure 3 illustrates the use of ammonia-fuel blends in internal combustion engines. Ammonia can be taken into the engine. Ammonia is a much less active fuel. It doesn't combust easily on its own. But, with a small amount of combustion enhancer (gasoline, diesel or pure hydrogen) mixed in, it burns and releases enough energy to drive the engine
Oil shortages, pollution and the cost of gasoline make our continued reliance on the internal combustion engine problematic, and electric cars just don't have the range to be a viable option for everyone. The NH3 Car is designed to meet that challenge. NH3 (which is the chemical name for ammonia) can be used as a fuel Ammonia CAS RN: 7664-41-7 Toxic Combustion Products.
