Ammonia NH3 is one of the most important chemicals in the world. Approximately 80% of the NH3 produced used as a fertilizer to supply the world's population with sufficient food. However, as the conventional ammonia synthesizing technology, Haber Bosch process is one of the largest energy users with a huge amount of CO2 emission. A more environmentally friendly alternative method is desirable in order to be able to produce NH3 in a sustainable and environmentally compatible manner, for example an electrochemical membrane reactor. For this purpose, the process of the electrochemical membrane reactor should be investigated and optimized based on several lab setups.
