FBK presents AMON at EFC23

The Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK) participated in the 10th edition of the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Piero Lunghi Conference (EFC23) held in Capri (Italy) from 13th to 15th September 2023.

Luca Prattico’, researcher at the Center for Sustainable Energy at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, presented the work entitled “From direct use of ammonia in solid oxide fuel cells to the next generation of ammonia fuel cell systems” within the session Alternative Fuels.

The presentation shows the work done within AMON Project where promising results about direct ammonia SOFC were achieved, showing no appreciable degradation of performances after a 500h continuous test. Further developments about experimental activities are expected in the next few months.

In this occasion, Prattico’ presented the project objectives, the progress achieved and the steps to be taken.

EFC23 is a well-known conference in the fields of hydrogen energy and fuel cell technologies is held biannually in Italy, and aims to discuss the scientific progress and the most modern applications of hydrogen and fuel cell-based technologies, to prove that the need for change is a resource to cultivate. Such a view is reflected in the cross-cutting topics and wide range of applications considered one of the pillars of future European energy and transport systems, making a valued contribution to the transformation to a low carbon economy by 2050.
