Plasma activated water as a source of green fertilizer


To use PAW as an alternative green fertilizer, the specific energy consumption from its current value of 900 MJ/kg of N, should be reduced to the loss incorporated Haber-Bosch process value of 260 MJ/kg of N. The current specific energy consumption value is two orders of magnitude higher than the theoretical limit of 7 MJ/kg of N. The research will focus on bringing down this specific energy by increasing the chemical selectivity of the PAW process. The work will bring down the CHG emissions from fossil fuel-based fertilizers and establish decentralizing the fertilizer generation process.
