NGK, Mitsubishi Heavy join forces for ammonia-derived hydrogen purification


A new hydrogen purification system that uses membrane separation to purify from hydrogen-nitrogen mixture gas after ammonia cracking is to be developed by NGK Insulators, Ltd., (NGK) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI).

The goal of the project is to build a system for purifying hydrogen using membrane separation from the mixed gas of hydrogen and nitrogen generated from the ammonia cracking gas.

The partners hope that the technology will lead to the creation of a hydrogen and ammonia supply chain enabling high-volume transport.

For the project, MHI will bring its experience in ammonia and chemical plants, along with ammonia and hydrogen handling tech, while NGK offers advanced sub nano ceramic membrane and film deposition technology from chemical processes and water purification.
