  • Located in Tyseley Energy Park (Birmingham, UK), the Ammogen project stands as the most efficient ammonia conversion to fuel-cell purity hydrogen.
  • H2SITE has designed and constructed the most efficient cracker utilizing membrane reactor technology to provide 200 kg per day of high-quality, transport-grade hydrogen.


H2SITE has designed and constructed the most efficient ammonia cracker utilizing membrane reactor technology to produce fuel cell-grade hydrogen for the Ammogen Project located at Tyseley Energy Park (TEP). This innovative project will use ammonia to store hydrogen and convert it to hydrogen in one step. Ammonia is becoming the carrier of choice worldwide to transport hydrogen.

The system designed and assembled by H2SITE will produce 200 kg of green hydrogen per day. The hydrogen produced will be ready for mobility applications in the Birmingham area.
H2SITE's ammonia cracking and separation technology consists of the integration of H2-selective membranes immersed in a catalytic bed where ammonia is cracked into its products. As the reaction produces hydrogen, the technology separates the hydrogen in-situ through these membranes, eliminating the need for downstream separation units. The selective separation of hydrogen in H2SITE's membrane reactors results in virtually complete ammonia conversions at mild temperatures, with over 98% hydrogen recovery, always meeting fuel-cell grade standards.

"This project is a steppingstone for us, as it validates the technology of the membrane reactor for ammonia cracking. We plan to scale it up to process tons per day within the next two years for use in import hubs and maritime applications" according to Jose Medrano, Technical Director at H2SITE.

In collaboration with partners such as the Tyseley Energy Park (TEP), Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ), Gemserv (Talan), EQUANS, Yara International, and the University of Birmingham, the Ammogen project aims to promote the international hydrogen trade.

About H2SITE H2SITE was created in 2020 and has an exclusive technology of reactors and separators for the conversion of different feedstocks into hydrogen, including ammonia, methanol, or syngas, in addition to the separation of hydrogen from gaseous mixtures in low concentration for applications in salt caverns or geologic hydrogen.

Energy transmission delays are costing Australians

We need to stick to the plan - delays to transmission builds are costing Australians A new report by Nexa Advisory reveals that delays in building energy transmission infrastructure will lead to higher electricity bills for both households and businesses, compromise energy reliability and jeopardise emissions reduction targets. CEO of Nexa Advisory, Stephanie Bashir, said: 'The factors contributing to the slow pace of the energy transition are complex.’ 'Nationally significant projects cannot languish in the purgatory of planning and regulatory processes that are not fit for purpose. We have to forge a way forward urgently, focused on accountability, coordination, and…

Federal investment in clean industries welcome, but handouts to coal need to stop

In response to the announcement of six new grants to cut emissions from industry, the Australian Conservation Foundation’s national climate policy adviser Annika Reynolds (they/them) said: “It’s great to see the federal government helping industrial and manufacturing facilities make the switch to more efficient and cost-effective clean processes, reducing reliance on outdated fossil fuels. “A future made in Australia starts with switching the fuel sources for existing heavy industries and helping big power users like aluminium smelters use energy more efficiently. “This sort of investment is vital for Gladstone, Kwinana, Geelong and other industrial centres so energy intensive sectors can…
