Low Carbon Ammonia at Nutrien

Nutrien is currently a world leader in the production of low carbon Ammonia today. A market premium for low carbon ammonia is critical to spur investment and deployment of transformative technologies, which will not only provide low carbon Ammonia as a fuel, but support decarbonization of the fertilizer industry as well. The development of a forward-looking certification process, based on sound science, is critical to developing this market.

Platform based Certification Scheme

A robust and internationally recognised certification scheme is critical to facilitate international trade of hydrogen and its carriers (such as ammonia) and other derivatives. There are a number of existing schemes and discussions are under way for further development, often describing the need for a scheme to be transparent, minimal, auditable and future-proof amongst other attributes, all at low cost and with minimum administrative overhead. This presentation proposes to look at a certification scheme from a ‘bottom-up’ perspective by considering possible technical solutions that exist and can be developed to meet the ‘top-down’ expectation.
