I read this interesting article:


The TL:DR is, carry a tank of ammonia in your car instead of hydrogen, turn it -into- hydrogen when you need it, and put the hydrogen through a fuel cell to create electricity, OR, burn the ammonia and clean up the NOx.

Great! We are all saved!

Wait a second, where does ammonia come from....

Modern ammonia-producing plants[edit]

Block flow diagram of the ammonia synthesis process
A typical modern ammonia-producing plant first converts natural gas (i.e., methane) or LPG (liquefied petroleum gases such as propane and butane) or petroleum naphtha into gaseous hydrogen. The method for producing hydrogen from hydrocarbons is referred to as "Steam Reforming".[2] The hydrogen is then combined with nitrogen to produce ammonia via the Haber-Bosch process.

Original article is this one from a week earlier:

Quite surprised with the volume of IT geeks here that this article wasn't picked up from /. at the time
