Clean process for nitrogen fertilizer production
Atmonia is an early stage company, developing a breakthrough electro-catalytic process for generating aqueous ammonia from air and water, for direct use as fertilizer through irrigation. The Atmonia process, unlike conventional ammonia production, is zero carbon and works at ambient pressure and temperature and is based on economical and abundant catalysts
Ammonia production is currently one of the major contributors to carbon emissions world wide. The Atmonia process does not emit any CO2.
Fertilizer that is ready to be used directly with fertigation systems.
Electrochemical process that can easily be scaled in size to fit various farms
The process is ideal to use with renewable energy such as solar and wind, as it is intermittent, operating at ambient temperature and pressure.
Fertilizer that is made directly at the farm, in the right amounts
Abundant, non-toxic and relatively cheap raw-materials.
From research to reality
Atmonia started as a research by Prof. Egill Skúlason at the University of Iceland in 2012. Quantum calculations by the research team, identified promising materials to be used as catalysts for nitrogen reduction to ammonia. Then in 2014 a collaboration was initiated with Innovation Center Iceland, to start experimental research on the materials identified. In 2016, when the project showed promising results, the team entered the Start-up Energy Reykjavík accelerator, and Atmonia was incorporated. Now Atmonia has 1 patents granted and additional 3 filed.
