Company Introduction

Amogy’s mission is to build technology that unlocks ammonia’s potential as a clean energy source, accelerating the global journey to Net Zero and sustaining future generations. Founded in 2020 by four visionary MIT PhD alumni, Amogy aims to enable the decarbonization of the hard-to-abate sectors, such as shipping, power generation, and heavy-duty transportation, with its ammonia-based, emission-free, high energy-density power solution.

Amogy has developed a compact, high-efficiency chemical reactor to split ammonia into hydrogen and nitrogen. This reactor system comes equipped with a high-activity catalyst, allowing the reaction and ammonia cracking process to take place at higher efficiency levels and lower operating than alternative designs. The hydrogen is then used to generate power through a fuel cell. This proprietary design leverages the superior physical characteristics of liquid ammonia with the performance advantages of hydrogen.

To date, Amogy’s ammonia-to-power system has been demonstrated with success in a 5kW drone, 100 kW tractor, and 300 kW semi truck, and the Amogy team is working on retrofitting a 1957 tugboat to be powered by the technology at a 1MW scale, which will be the world's-first ammonia-powered vessel.

Headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, Amogy has expanded its operations to Houston, Texas, Norway, and Singapore. The company’s investors include Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund, AP Ventures, SK Innovation, Aramco Ventures and Mitsubishi Corporation. More info

Core competence

Amogy is building a novel portable carbon-free energy system using ammonia as a renewable fuel creating a new energy system that will enable the decarbonization of the transportation and power generation industries. Amogy has developed a highly-efficient ammonia-to-power technology that feeds liquid ammonia through its cracking modules integrated into a hybrid fuel cell system, which powers electric motors for zero-carbon transportations including shipping.
