Innovative chemical technology

IN THE FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER

With the highly active catalyst AmoMax®-10, less pressure and lower temperatures are needed for ammonia synthesis than before. This saves energy and gives the chance to even increase the ammonia yield. Thanks to this new catalyst, it will be possible to build smaller and more cost effective ammonia plants in future while achieving the same production output. Clariant is thereby helping to make future food supply more secure and ecologically compatible.

Challenge

IT’S GETTING CROWDED ON OUR BLUE PLANET –
REFORMAX® AND AMOMAX®-10 HELP TO FEED THE WORLD

Meeting the nutritional needs of the growing world population will mean having to increase harvest yields per area by efficient fertilization. The worldwide production of ammonia, the starting material of all nitrogen based fertilizers, consumes high amounts of energy.

Solution

FERTILIZERS CAN BE PRODUCED MORE EFFICIENTLY USING HIGHLY EFFECTIVE AMMONIA SYNTHESIS CATALYSTS

Clariant offers highly active catalysts which help to save energy during the production of ammonia. With AmoMax®-10 the temperature and pressures needed for the reaction between nitrogen and hydrogen to form ammonia can be lowered, which highly reduces the energy input. Its special structure offers a larger surface area on which the chemical reactions can take place, enhanced additionally by two kinds of tailor-made activators, increasing both its stability and its catalytic efficacy.
