Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation (DNATF)
Project: New materials for ammonia storage The scope of the project is to develop new materials for e.g. improved thermal integration of low-temperature fuel cells (FC) for ammonia fueled zero-carbon power generation. Project partner: Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
About DNATF: The Danish government aims at making Denmark one of the world's leading advanced technological societies. Consequently, the Danish government has founded the Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation with the general objective to enhance growth and strengthen employment by supporting strategic and advanced technological priorities within the field of research and innovation.
Danish Ministry of Environment - Eco-innovation Program
Project: Improved system performance for automotive exhaust cleaning
The project aims at optimizing the ASDS™ system by developing and testing accurate and advanced methods to monitor the remaining amount of ammonia in the system. With such methods it is possible for the system to become smaller, lighter, cheaper, less energy consuming and increase NOx reduction capabilities.
About the Eco-innovation program: The government wants to provide companies with the very best conditions for generating new solutions as an integrated part of its environmental, business and innovation policy. This is to be achieved through grants for developing, testing and demonstrating new environmental technologies; co-ordination of statutory environmental regulation and investments in environmental technology; collaborations between researchers and businesses; and assistance when businesses are ready to enter the global marketplace with new solutions.
Danish Energy Agency, Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program (EUDP)
Project: AdAmmine™ - cartridge refilling and dosing technology.
The project was comprised of two parts - 1. Development of aftermarket technologies that focuses on finding optimal solutions for refilling ammonia storage cartridges and 2. Development of new ammonia dosing concepts for optimizing the ammonia dosing hardware on the vehicle.
About EUDP: The main objective of the EUDP is to ensure the development and demonstration of new energy technologies which can reduce dependency on fossil energy and which can contribute to minimizing the CO2 burden and the environmental impact of energy consumption.
Formålet med projektet var at tilpasse, demonstrere og teste en teknisk løsning til at nedbringe NOx udledningen fra bybusser. Løsningen er baseret på dansk teknologi i form af AET’s system til lagring og dosering af ammoniak på dieselkøretøjer (ASDS™).
Projektet viste at der findes en kommercielt attraktiv teknologisk løsning til nedbringelse af NOx forureningen, med lavere brændstofforbrug end eksisterende teknologier, som vil forbedre folkesundheden i byerne. En markedsintroduktion vil skabe danske arbejdspladser og især produktionsarbejdspladser på AETs fabrik i Nyborg.
