Why a Symposium on Ammonia Energy?

Ammonia is emerging as a future energy vector for decarbonisation of the global economy. However, there are still many unknowns before the chemical can be deployed at large scale. Therefore, progress is taking place in every corner of the World. Hence, this event provides an international forum for the presentation and discussion of state-of-the-art scientific and engineering advances on the subject. 


The 1st Symposium

Two Days of Unique Talks
01 Sept 2022
09:00 am (GMT)

Comprehensive work on ammonia as an energy vector currently takes place at Cardiff, UK. The topic has spurred various national and international collaborations, hence attracting the attention of the scientific and industrial community. Therefore, Cardiff University has been put forward to host the event. Our strong International Scientific Committee will ensure that unique research is presented at the conference, attracting innovative topics that will spur further collaboration and development at a multidisciplinary level. 

The event intends to receive contributions from scientists at all levels of their careers, from students to consolidated researchers, ensuring large dissemination of all types of research and development. 

Hosted in Hybrid mode (online and presential), the presential mode will take place at the new Centre of Student Life recently finished at the core of Cardiff city centre. Further details can be found in

Fees: *

* Online participation: Free.

* Presential: Recuperation fees for meals and Gala Dinner (TBC).


* 3rd September: Trip to the Green Ammonia Demonstrator, Rutherford Appleton Laboratories (RAL), Oxfordshire, UK
