AdAmmine™ - the solid ammonia material

AdAmmine™ is the solid material that makes ASDS™ the most effective system on the market for reducing NOx. Just as a sponge can absorb water, AdAmmine™ binds ammonia (NH3), and it can hold large quantities. AdAmmine™ is safe to handle, and can release its content of ammonia gradually if heated.

A block of AdAmmine™ holds ~450g ammonia per liter solid for use in the NOx conversion. We use strontium chloride (SrCl2) to bind the ammonia. When the material is manufactured and integrated into a cartridge, the product is easy to handle and is tamper- and fool-proof. The shelf-life is virtually unlimited - no expiration date. Through quick connector the used cartridges can easily be exchanged and refilled - just like a propane bottle.

AdAmmine™ is a sustainable product – each cartridge can be refilled hundreds of times and is 100% recyclable. Safe transportation – AdAmmine™ cartridges are classified by UN as Non-hazardous goods. Furthermore, AdAmmine™ enables improved Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for fleet operators and users when compared to the operating costs of conventional liquid based NOx reduction (up-time, fuel, maintenance).  

 

 

A 100-gram cube of the solid AdAmmine™ material can fit into the palm of one's hand yet contain up to 50 grams of solid ammonia.
