Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Pair claim they can make ammonia to fuel cars for just 20 cents per liter: John Fleming of SilverEagles Energy and Tim Maxwell from Texas Tech University, say they have developed a way to make ammonia that is cheap enough so that it could be used as fuel for cars. If their claims turn out to be true, many consumers might consider switching over because ammonia, when burned in an engine, emits nothing but nitrogen and water vapor out the tailpipe. And if that’s not enough incentive, they claim they can make the ammonia for just 20 cents a liter (approximately 75 cents a gallon).

Even if they can make it for that now I have no doubt middlemen will get involved and drive up the cost by cornering the products used in the process.
