RTI International will feature its project, “Innovative Renewable Energy-Based Catalytic Ammonia Production” at the 2018 Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) Energy Innovation Summit March 13 – March 15 in Washington, DC. The project was funded under a $3.1 million grant awarded under the U.S. Department of Energy’s ARPA-E’s Renewable Energy to Fuels through Utilization of Energy-Dense Liquids (REFUEL) program.

ARPA-E’s REFUEL program seeks to develop scalable technologies for converting electrical energy from renewable resources into energy-dense carbon-neutral liquid fuels (CNLF) and back into electricity or hydrogen on demand. RTI is researching an innovative ammonia synthesis system that can operate at lower temperatures and pressures than established technologies. The team will use a breakthrough catalyst to improve on the traditional Haber-Bosch catalysts currently in use. If successful, the system will be economically viable and able to start and stop in synchronization with intermittent renewable power sources.

RTI will be at Booth #224 to feature the REFUEL project and will be available to discuss our capabilities and research in:

  • Natural Gas
  • Biomass Conversion
  • Carbon Capture and Utilization
  • Syngas Processing
  • Industrial Water Treatment
  • Advanced Materials
  • Process Development

If you would like to schedule an appointment to meet with RTI while at the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit, please contact Caroline Ball (1.919.485.5505) or stop by the RTI International Booth #224.


About ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit

The U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) has hosted the Energy Innovation Summit for the past eight years. Known as the “premier event dedicated to transformational energy solutions,” this annual summit gathers more than 2,200 of the top energy industry experts from government, academia and business to bring the latest energy innovations out of the lab and into the marketplace.

ARPA-E invests in transformational ideas to create America's future energy technologies. ARPA-E programs are created to address critical challenges in energy innovation, and ARPA-E-funded project teams receive hands-on guidance to meet ambitious milestones that push the boundaries of energy innovation and help advance their technologies towards the marketplace.
