This we week we explore four new announcements for financing ammonia energy solutions from Jupiter Ionics (modular 3rd generation synthesis), Hydrofuel (novel cracking technology), FuelPositive (green ammonia synthesis) and Nitricity (point-of-use green fertiliser).
The presentation will address the importance of developing a green hydrogen and ammonia facility in the Midwestern region of the United States and why access to both a strong ammonia market and abundant renewable energy is so critical. The presentation also will show the significant benefit to the agriculture industry of using green ammonia, particularly from a carbon reduction standpoint.
Maire Tecnimont and Greenfield Nitrogen have agreed to develop a green ammonia plant in Iowa, USA. Maire Tecnimont subsidiary NextChem will lead a feasibility study into a 240 tonne per day green ammonia plant based on Stamicarbon's Green Ammonia Technology.
In the coming weeks new piping infrastructure will be built to connect Fertiberia's Puertollano ammonia production plant and 20 MW of on-site (but to-be-installed) electrolsyers.
A team led by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the Silesian University of Technology (SUT) is currently working on Project ACTIVATE. Their goal is to field demonstrate an ammonia-powered, cost-competitive agricultural vehicle by late 2023.
To deploy green ammonia projects at the scale and speed required to meet decarbonisation targets, we have to revisit conventional methods. There are numerous challenges in coupling renewable energy with ammonia production. This presentation proposes to use ‘Reference Plants’ as building blocks to closely couple green hydrogen and green ammonia plants.
An oft-touted benefit of green hydrogen and ammonia is the modularity of production technologies, which may enable the use of micro-plants for distributed green fuel production without losing the benefits normally associated with economies of scale. To that end, a number of very small ammonia projects are being considered in Australia with electrolyser installations ~30 MW (e.g. QNP). At the opposite end of the spectrum, however, the Asian Renewable Energy hub has announced intentions to install 15 GW of electrolysis capacity. We explore the components of the full value chain of ammonia, from electricity generation to green ammonia delivery, and…
Green ammonia, a carbon-free chemical, has been drawing much attention as a hydrogen carrier and carbon-neutral fuel for trading green hydrogen and building a carbon-neutral society, respectively, because it has higher volumetric hydrogen content and energy density than liquid hydrogen. And the infrastructure for storing and transporting ammonia is already in place. To implement green ammonia into the current energy systems, technologies on low-cost green ammonia production, decomposition, and utilization are essential. This presentation will show the KIER’s current status and perspective on the development of low-cost green ammonia production and utilization.
