Fifth Meeting of the Advisory Board CAMPFIRE

The focus of the Fifth Meeting of the Advi­sory Board on March 11, 2021 was on our project teams CF04 Solid State Ammonia Synthesis, CF06_1 Ammonia Reactor and CF06_2 Ammonia Plant. The project part­ners presented recent results in the deve­lo­p­ment of thin films, cata­lysts and reac­tion tech­no­logy as well as system model­ling of elec­tro­lysis processes,…

CF06_2: Development of a concept for a functional model for the commercial decentralised production of green ammonia

Green ammonia CF06_2 Project costs: 502 T€ Project period: 05/2020–06/2022 Part­ners: Objec­tive: The objec­tive of project CF06_2 is to develop a concept for the indus­trial produc­tion of green ammonia with 16 MW installed capa­city from wind and solar and 5 MW from elec­tro­lysis at a site in the region. The plant will be desi­gned to…

CF06_1: Development of a decentralised generation technology for green ammonia to store renewable energy

Green ammonia CF06_1 Project costs: 714 T€ Project period: 04/2020–10/2022 Part­ners: KIT Objec­tive: In project CF06_1, a test labo­ra­tory for the deve­lo­p­ment of new systems for decen­tra­lised ammonia synthesis is being set up on the YARA premises using the exis­ting infra­st­ruc­ture. The Univer­sity of Rostock, a project partner, will confi­gure and test three possible types…

CF09: GreenBalticCruising: Development of a concept for the implementation of CAMPFIRE technologies for zero-emission marine mobility in the Baltic Sea Region

Marine propul­sion CF09 Project costs: 605 T€ Project period: 10/2020–10/2022 Part­ners: Carnival Martime, Port Rostock, Yara Objec­tive: The use of ammonia as a new energy source on the Baltic Sea requires a detailed consi­de­ra­tion of the Baltic Sea coun­tries, their port struc­tures and ship­ping connec­tions with nort­hern Germany. In addi­tion to deve­lo­ping poten­tial ammonia-based ferry…

CF08_1: Development of a concept for the emission-free operation of an inland vessel powered by ammonia

Marine propul­sion CF08_1 Project costs: 1.279 T€ Project period: 09/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Objec­tive: The objec­tive of CF08 projects is to outfit an inland vessel as a ‘test vehicle’ that uses an ammonia-powered internal combus­tion engine, a process that includes the instal­la­tion of the necessary tank, safety and peri­pheral systems onboard the vessel. The ammonia-powered propul­sion system…

CF07: Development of a functional model for an ammonia-powered sport yacht with a hybrid system consisting of a solid oxide fuel cell and engine

Marine propul­sion CF07 Project costs: 1.470 T€ Project period: 09/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Objec­tive: Sailing yachts have always used wind for propul­sion. Today, the inte­rior fittings offered by most modern sailing yachts meet high stan­dards and use electrical energy for navi­ga­tion, safety, secon­dary propul­sion and auxi­liary equip­ment onboard the ship. This energy is provided by fossil-based primary…

CAMPFIRE World Café 2020

In line with our roadmap for rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment in the region of Northeast Germany, cost-opti­mised produc­tion methods for basic inno­va­tions are being deve­loped and imple­mented. This is a prere­qui­site for estab­li­shing decen­tra­lised synthesis plants that will produce the carbon-free hydrogen carrier ammonia as an infra­st­ruc­ture and storage solu­tion, as well as emis­sion-free propul­sion systems…

Fourth meeting of the CAMPFIRE Advisory Board

At the fourth meeting of our advi­sory board, which was held on 1 October 2020 at Ozea­neum Stral­sund, we presented a status update on our joint projects. Toge­ther, we consi­dered future oppor­tu­nities for our consor­tium. We also discussed an acqui­si­tion plan for further imple­men­ta­tion and for the crea­tion of the basic tools needed for technology…

CF05: Electroceramic thin films for the use of ammonia in marine propulsion systems

Thin films CF05 Project costs: 1.193 T€ Project period: 09/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Objec­tive: The consor­tium for the colla­bo­ra­tive project CF05 is deve­lo­ping a quick-start membrane reactor for the produc­tion of hydrogen from ammonia. This is a key hydrogen tech­no­logy for effi­cient energy conver­sion in diffe­rent types of fuel cells and engines in the future. In contrast…

CF04: Thin-film-based membrane electrode assemblies for the decentralised synthesis of ammonia by solid-state ammonia synthesis

Thin films CF04 Project costs: 1.934 T€ Project period: 06/2020–08/2022 Part­ners: Kerafol Over­view: Inte­gra­ting new elec­tro­cer­amic thin films into energy systems enables the small-scale imple­men­ta­tion of resource-effi­cient direct and flexible energy conver­sion processes for ammonia synthesis. In joint project CF04, part­ners are deve­lo­ping high-perfor­mance thin-film-based membrane elec­trode units (MEA) for the decen­tra­lised synthesis of ammonia…
