Rescale helps zero-emission energy company Amogy grow


SAN FRANCISCO, March 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Resizethe leader in high-performance computing built for the cloud to accelerate technical innovation, today announced its collaboration with the clean energy pioneer Amogy to develop technology that uses ammonia-based solutions to power ships, trucks, planes and trains, and reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by 10% by 2040.

“Today, heavy transportation releases one-tenth of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere every year,” said Seonghoon Woo, CEO of Amogy. “By adopting Rescale’s advanced computing techniques, we are able to move much faster through our product development cycles. We are seeing a 5x increase in engineering productivity through increased fidelity in our simulations and modeling, while reducing our compute infrastructure expenses.

Founded in 2020 by a team of former MIT PhDs and based in Brooklyn, New York, Amogy’s goal is to create an ammonia fuel system that would dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. globally – up to 10% over the next two decades, Woo mentioned. Amogy’s solution combines advances in hydrogen fuel cells with the advantages of ammonia as a fuel source.

In December 2021, Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund invested an undisclosed amount in Amogy. In partnership with Amazon, Amogy will work to demonstrate a clean ammonia-powered cargo vessel. Amazon said decarbonizing shipping is one of the biggest environmental challenges to tackle climate change.

Amogy’s technological development is based on computer research using high performance computing. Amogy engineers test several models, with a variety of settings and under varying conditions. A key objective is to optimize a design that maximizes the process of converting ammonia to hydrogen in their reactors. The ultimate solution – an alternative energy replacement for the fossil fuels that power heavy transportation – required computational resources for large-scale simulation and modeling. Rescale offered a complete HPC-as-a-Service solution with a user interface designed by and for scientists.

Backed by investors including Jeff Bezos, Sir Richard Branson, Microsoft, Samsung and NVIDIA, Rescale is accelerating technical breakthroughs across a wide range of industries, enabling scientists and engineers to do more, faster. Rescale automates the entire high-performance computing stack, empowering users with computing science and engineering applications with the world’s most powerful computing architectures, while delivering computing security and control.

“Our customers and partners use Rescale to dramatically accelerate product development cycles to create breakthrough solutions in nearly every industry,” said Garrett VanLee, senior product marketing manager at Rescale. “We are excited to work with the engineers, scientists and researchers who are creating clean technologies that are transforming industry and protecting the environment for future generations. »
