Abstract : At maximum output, more oxides of nitrogen are produced by combustion of ammonia than with hydrocarbon fuels. This is partly a result of peak power occurring at low mixtures with ammonia. Disproportionate quantities of nitrogen oxides which are encountered with ammonia at lean mixture ratios indicate a probable result of the direct production of NO in the ammonia pyrolysis scheme.
