Safe working environment in laboratories dealing with ammonia


This report is describing safe working environment laboratories working with ammonia.

Due to the high toxicity level of ammonia, safety is one of the main concerns to address. Since ammonia use as fuel in ICE's is currently in testing phase early learning from the ammonia engine laboratories can provide essential knowledge on usage of ammonia as fuel and how to operate it safely. Ammonia engine laboratory testing teams contributed to this report providing knowledge on how they have operated the ammonia engine and the fuel system during testing.

The report also provides background knowledge on properties of ammonia and on the health hazard of ammonia.
