N2 Applied AS was established in June 2010. The company serves as a nucleus for the development of new technologies within the area of nitrogen. We work with an international network and assess new technologies within areas of competence where the founders have particular insight and a competitive advantage. Based on these evaluated concepts, N2 Applied develops new businesses.
In N2 Applied we develop technology for fixing nitrogen from air – at a time and in a situation where the nitrogen market is mature and commoditized and where sustainable technologies gain market share. We apply Norwegian and international know-how and industrial experience in order to develop an energy efficient process for producing NO gas. We put modern process technology to the test on the well-known electric arc principle of Professor Kristian Birkeland. Distributed plasma based fertilizer production enables increased food production while reducing pollution.
