Green Ammonia as a Global Reserve Fuel – Marking the end of Oil and Gas

8 November 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Geopolitical risk has recently added a whole new dimension to the climate debate – do we burn more coal, or give way to blackmail? Do we have to choose?

Ammonia is hydrogen’s Cinderella – often overlooked but with hidden talent. This talk will look at the potential of ammonia as a global reserve fuel to replace oil and gas – and to do so cost effectively, securely, and safely.

Dr Mason is an investor in green technologies, and also carries out research into the economics and potential of hydrogen and ammonia. He is a Visiting Research Fellow at the Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technology at the University of Bath. In 1996 he founded one of the world’s first carbon trading companies, Climate Care, which was then acquired by JP Morgan, where he worked for a spell. This was followed by a period as ‘Energy Advisor to the President of the Maldives’ where his brief was to make the country the world’s first climate neutral country. This was sadly interrupted by a coup d’état. Following a late career D. Phil. at Oxford Mike became interested in ammonia and hydrogen, and in particular the potential of ammonia to power difficult parts of a modern economy.
