Using ammonia as an energy source could decrease our carbon footprint
Ammonia as a source of energy could decrease the carbon footprint - short science articles

Ammonia is used as an alternative to gasoline and light oil in thermal power generation and industrial furnances. However, it is difficult to burn and as a by-product produces harmful nitrogen oxides during combustion. Now, researchers have successfully developed a new catalyst which burns ammonia at a low temperature. When used for combustion, researchers found that it selectively produced nitrogen and also did not change in structure even at high temperatures.
Since the cost of production of this new catalyst is very low, it could very well pave the way for decreasing the carbon footprint.
