Low cost plasma membrane reactor to efficiently convert ammonia to hydrogen
Using a plasma field between an iron tube and palladium foil tube, ammonia can be broken down to nitrogen and hydrogen, with the hydrogen pulled through the palladium foil efficiently, resulting in very high hydrogen gas purity separation. Process is low temperature and pressure as well, though the palladium foil probably isn't cheap. Effectively an ammonia fuel reformer for a hydrogen fuel cell, allowing storage of low pressure ammonia as fuel.

Apparently they have a good high temperature steam electrolysis SOEC that can produce hydrogen at decent efficiencies, for feeding into a RWGS conversion reactor syngas production rig, to eventually produce synthetic methane (combining syngas from the reactor with additional H2 from the SOEC), or eventually via FT, synthetic liquid fuels. They don't seem to be doing a coelectrolysis SOEC to crack steam and CO2 simultaneously in the same cell stack though.
