Upcoming Webinars

2/11/2021 @ 2:00 pm Central --- FEWtures Project: Economic feasibility of Ammonia Production and Water Treatment Using Locally Produced Wind Energy. 
Energy from abundant wind in the High Plains provides opportunities for farmers and small communities to expand their economic base and be more resilient.  Research is underway on two options:  treatment of poor-quality water and production of ammonia.  Local-scale ammonia production has multiple potential uses:  as a carbon-free nitrogen fertilizer, as energy storage to be converted back to electricity when needed, or for hydrogen fuel.  Numbers are being  crunched for these technologies, potential end uses, and scales to indicate their economic viability.
Presenters:  Vincent Amanor-Boadu, Mary Hill.
