Ammonia is traditionally synthesized thermochemically via the Haber–Bosch process, where nitrogen gas and fossil fuel–derived hydrogen react at high temperatures and pressures over iron catalysts. Electrochemical routes for ammonia production allow for replacing costly temperature/pressure with voltage in an electrochemical reactor. Lithium-mediated electrochemical approaches have been shown to produce ammonia both continuously and batch-wise.
