AmmPower appoints Zhenyu as Chief Technologist
Zhenyu attended the Colorado School of Mines, specializing in catalytic membrane reactors for effective ammonia decomposition and synthesis. As AmmPower’s chief technologist, he will lead the development of hydrogen releasing ammonia “cracking” or dissociation techs and ammonia producing catalyst technologies.
He has experience in the field, having published scientific papers where he proposed a new catalytic membrane reactors configuration for simultaneous hydrogen release and purification from ammonia decomposition. Zhenyu’s success in his work led to the start of a research project financed by the Department of Energy (DOE) with a $2 million research grant. Dr. Zhang was in charge of project conception, process design, data collection, and analysis. His groundbreaking research has paved the road for future ammonia production.
AmmPower CEO Gary Benninger said, “I am very pleased to personally welcome Zhenyu to our AmmPower team where he will hold a key leadership position, guiding us in our quest to create a greener world.”
