A breakthrough cell
Developed by world-leading researchers at Monash University, Jupiter Ionics’ breakthrough electrolytic cell* uses a unique, high-performance design that optimises efficiency, durability and ammonia production. Our team of talented scientists and engineers continues to push the boundaries of technology in search of ever greater performance.
The MacFarlane Simonov Ammonia Cell is the first of its kind to demonstrate ammonia generation with 100% selectivity, and has shown good stability in lab tests.
The MacFarlane Simonov Ammonia Cell
*A cell comprises two separated electrodes in a conductive liquid or gel electrolyte. Battery cells use chemical reactions to generate electrical energy. Conversely, electrolytic cells like ours use electrical energy to drive chemical reactions.
Shipping container-size cell
We have created this scalable, modular technology to produce carbon-neutral ammonia for fertilisers.
Green ammonia can also replace fossil fuels as a source of energy and/or clean hydrogen that can be safely and easily transported.
Jupiter Ionics is developing a flexible, modular system for the production of carbon-neutral, Green Ammonia. Our system takes in air and water, and uses renewably-generated electricity to convert these to ammonia.
At the heart of our system is the MacFarlane Simonov Ammonia cell.
