Considerable works have been conducted on the topic of ammonia and its production, storage, distribution, use and impacts (climate and public). It seems clear that the molecule will play a role in the near- and long-term future in supporting the decarbonization of our energy-hungry society. However, several questions arise from both these works and current support given to the transition of a zero-carbon economy via ammonia. Technical barriers, economic challenges and missing feasibility studies along with scepticism pose a threat to the concept. Therefore, the path to progress needs to be clear to efficiently enable the use of ammonia as a large contributor to tomorrow's worldwide economy, utilizing novel ideas to challenge old concepts. These future trends, mostly based on current works aforementioned in this book, will establish the scientific, industrial and governmental agendas that will foresee the creation of systems and techniques capable of using ammonia as a unique energy vector. Therefore, this chapter approaches many of these trends, seeding the grounds for ideas that will break through old stigmas and position ammonia in a leading role for a clean future.
