This NASA funded project seeks to eliminate the use of fossil fuels in aviation. We will be investigating catalysts to convert Ammonia (NH3) to Hydrogen and Nitrogen as well as there integration into aviation engines. This work will enable the utilization of H2/N2 mixes in jet engines and eliminate NOx and carbon pollution associated with current hydrocarbon-based fuels. This project is a large multidisciplinary effort involving researchers at UCF (MAE, FSI, and EH&S), Purdue, GE, Boeing, Georgia Tech, Southwest Research Institute, and the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. Work will involve strong collaboration with these partners.
