Jupiter Ionics is an early stage company made up of a team of passionate scientists and engineers with a vision for a future economy powered by carbon neutral Green Ammonia.
Spun out from Monash University in 2021, they are developing breakthrough electrochemical technologies that will underpin modular and decentralised production units that require only water, air and renewable electricity to produce ammonia and related fertilisers.

What (and whose) problem is your company trying to solve?

Decarbonising ammonia production is the world’s problem, in the sense that we need ammonia-based fertiliser to feed us, but it is currently a major source of carbon emissions. Specifically, we are trying to improve the experience of farmers using nitrogen-based fertilisers.
