The ability to store massive amounts of dispatchable energy is key for the development of reliable and flexible energy systems, particularly under the new energy concept where large renewable power plants increasingly farther from end users will operate together with distributed wind and solar power plants. Massive energy storage enables a wide set of features ranging from improved supply and demand adjustment, increased system reliability and decarbonization of energy intensive sectors including heating services, industry, and transport. Within this framework, green hydrogen outstands as a key solution to unleash the full potential of renewable energy sources to decarbonize energy applications…
Nustar Energy’s ammonia pipeline system in the US runs for around 2,000 miles, and transports 1.5 million tonnes of anhydrous ammonia per year. Transporting ammonia via pipeline is safe, efficient, cost-effective, has a low-carbon footprint, and will play a critical role in bridging the gap to a carbon-free future.
This presentation will cover logistics in general for ammonia in the USA. In particular, what are the challenges of rail pressures on ammonia transport? What, if any, policy goal does TFI pursue to address challenges with the rail industry?
Navigator Gas has been awarded AiP for the design of its new, ammonia-fueled gas carrier. An industry-wide consortium including MAN ES, Babcock International, and the Norwegian Maritime Authority (NMA) collaborated on the design.
Trammo (one of the world's largest transporters of ammonia) will supply green ammonia to Lotte Fine Chemical (LFC is currently the largest ammonia buyer in Asia) after a new agreement was signed this week. The MoU represents the first green
Korean logistics organisation Hyundai Glovis will ship LPG and ammonia from 2024 as part of a new ten-year agreement signed with Swiss-based commodity trader Trafigura. Glovis will spend around US$170 million on two new very large gas carriers (VLGCs) designed
Woodside Energy, JOGMEC, Marubeni and two Japanese power utilities signed a joint research agreement this week to investigate the feasibility of a blue ammonia supply chain between Australia and Japan.
Infrastructure is key to realising the full potential of ammonia energy, enabling new markets and expanding the existing ones. By 2050 the hydrogen (and by extension, ammonia) market could be 20 times larger than it is today. What future possibilities
