Ammonia synthesis underpins modern life but carries a high energy and carbon cost. Recent electrochemical alternatives focus on ambient, aqueous systems with little current prospect for application. Here, Kyriakou et al.1 demonstrate a high-temperature and ambient pressure solid-state approach coupling methane steam reforming with ammonia synthesis to decrease energy usage.
