In this article, Alex Koyfman talks about investing in ammonia fuel as an alternative to traditional fossil fuels.
Several weeks ago I wrote to you about a startup in Brooklyn, New York, called Amogy, which built the world’s first fully functional semi truck to run on ammonia fuel.
To some it was a science experiment.
To some it was a proof of concept.
To the world’s biggest oil company — the $1.8 trillion-market-cap behemoth with $580 billion in annual revenues, Saudi Aramco — it turned out to be a reason to get out the checkbook.
As of early February, Saudi Arabia’s namesake oil company officially became a financial backer of Amogy.
For investors across the world, this should be a huge bullhorn signaling a fundamental change in direction for the energy industry.
So what's all the fuss about?
Ammonia fuel is a high-powered, zero-emission alternative to traditional fossil fuels.
In the 1960s, it powered the X-15 rocket plane to record speeds and altitudes — records that still stand to this day.
It has a high-octane rating of 120, which means it will run well in most modern high-compression automotive engines.
And with minor modifications, any standard ICE engine will burn it efficiently, as demonstrated by Amogy’s semi.
The only thing that will come out of the tailpipe is water vapor and traces of nitrogen.

Zero Carbon Is Only the Beginning
So why isn’t the whole world running on this stuff by now? The answer is simple.
The traditional method for producing artificial ammonia, called the Haber-Bosch process, is itself a dirty and energy-inefficient endeavor.
Because of this single limitation, 90% of the global ammonia market up to this point was accounted for by the agricultural industry, with ammonia as a fuel hardly registering on the radar.
Thanks to a recent development, however, that entire paradigm is changing.
Innovations made by one particular Vancouver-based company have now made it possible to create clean ammonia fuel from nothing more than air, water, and electricity.
The process, like the resulting fuel, is highly efficient and carbon neutral.
This one puzzle piece falling into place has opened the door to a systemic shift in the way we create and manage our energy. Join Wealth Daily today for FREE.

Investing in Ammonia – Liquid Batteries?
Ammonia fuel can now be used to transform our existing vehicle fleets — including the very car you drive every day — into zero-emission vehicles.
It can be used to convert the world’s cargo shipping fleets from marine diesel, and it can give these ships theoretically infinite ranges with the implementation of portable onboard ammonia generation facilities.
Ammonia itself, because it requires only the most basic raw materials, can be used as a liquid energy storage medium for renewable energy generation plants.
Excess electricity can be turned into ammonia for storage and then turned back into electricity via ammonia-burning generators when demand calls for it.
Just a few years ago, all of these ideas were science fiction-level concepts — great to entertain the mind, but completely unrealistic when it came to execution.
Today… Well, today we have Saudi Aramco making investments in an ammonia startup, which should tell you everything you need to know.
The Vancouver-based company I mentioned earlier is also a development-stage company.
It's principal product, a portable, stackable ammonia generation device about the size of a refrigerator, is already entering commercialization.
The proprietary technology behind it all could be worth billions of dollars, even tens of billions, in short order.
Fractions of a Penny on the Dollar
Today its market capitalization is only in the tens of millions of dollars.
Unlike most companies at this stage of development, however, there is an opportunity here for retail investors… because this stock is already public.
For now, things are quiet, but if you look at the rate of new ammonia fuel headlines in the press, you’ll see that this story is finally picking up steam.
Want to learn more about it?
My colleague Keith Kohl — investment director of our biggest premium financial newsletter, Technology and Opportunity — recently published an in-depth video presentation on the topic in which he goes into all the details of the ammonia fuel trend and the best ways to take advantage.
He’s isolated two key plays in the sector, including the company I briefly mentioned above.
Whether you’re risk-averse or risk-seeking, there may be true value investing in ammonia.
