We open our 2023 annual conference with a keynote from Dolf Gielen, Senior Energy Economist at the World Bank. Q&A moderated by Trevor Brown (Executive Director, AEA).

Ammonia can be a key clean hydrogen carrier for the coming decades. It offers the prospect of a new clean energy commodity that can be traded widely. However, such trade will depend critically on a harmonized international certification system for the embedded greenhouse gas emissions. This presentation will elaborate the market potential as well as the investment and financing needs based on new analysis. It will draw on the recent clean hydrogen certification experience to suggest solutions for the way ahead.

This session examines the role of offtake agreements as a key element of project finance.

The AEA’s certification system will enable project developers to “pre-certify” an ammonia plant during the design and engineering stage, in advance of financial close. The panel will discuss the ways in which such pre-certification can best provide assurance that the delivered product will meet the requirements of offtakers, and support bankability for low-carbon ammonia plants in development.

This session will examine the need for high quality data as an input to certification, ensuring the accuracy and credibility of the certification system.

The AEA’s certification system will require data inputs from gas and electricity suppliers, as well as from CO2 offtakers and other users, in order to calculate an absolute carbon footprint. For some inputs, well-established standards and certification schemes exist (eg, electricity), although these might not be globally consistent; for other inputs, satisfactory data may be more difficult to collect today. Even with high quality inputs, some markets will require a higher standard of assurance than a digital certification scheme can supply, creating demand for physical verification layers. The credibility of the AEA’s proposed global certification system rests on the requirement that data used within the scheme is sufficiently robust, and that where there is a gap – for example, a lack of international standards – we are able to identify this gap and push for it to be addressed.

Our two Methodology sessions will explore the AEA’s certification methodology document (“Ammonia Carbon Footprint Calculation Methodology v1.0 Final Draft”), with AEA consultants Hinicio and the co-chairs of the AEA’s certification working groups. Our speakers will unpack and explain the newly-released document in discussion with the audience.

In this first session, we establish the foundations of the AEA’s methodology for carbon footprint calculations, including the Scope (well-to-gate, gate conditions) and requirements for Data Quality (certifying inputs, cutoff criteria, default values, etc.). We then unpack the concept of Core Energy Inputs (emissions accounting for single & multiple inputs, hybrid plants, batch and co-processing, etc.). Hincio representatives John Bonk & Antonio Parisi will introduce the topics, before the AEA’s certification co-chairs Nicholas Cook (CF Industries), Emile Herben (Yara Clean Ammonia), and Jakob Krummenacher (LSB Industries) lead an open audience discussion.

Stakeholders in the energy transition are naturally focused on major new applications for ammonia, such as maritime fuel and power generation. With little fanfare, though, a variety of other applications for low-carbon ammonia are emerging. This session will focus on a few such applications. In the first part, representatives of companies in the vanguard will provide an overview of their development efforts. Ammonia for steel, PEM fuel cell refueling, glass manufacturing, aviation and combustion engine fuel will all be explored. The second part of the session will feature discussion of the technological and business challenges that the companies are encountering as they forge ahead, and the solutions they are developing. Common themes across the companies’ experiences will be identified, and lessons for parties from other industries will be suggested.

In the Netherlands, the modernization of the PGS-12 standard will create a clear and transparent guideline for safe ammonia terminals in the country. In this interactive workshop session, we discuss how existing regulations should be and can be updated with a tangible example of PGS-12 guidelines. What is PGS-12? What updates were necessary to consider new ammonia applications? How can PGS-12 inform terminal design elsewhere? As an outcome from this session, we will use the discussion to structure a potential best practice guideline for port safety.

This session focuses on the need for a global certification system to provide data, not just labels, to satisfy a complex range of market requirements.

While the world appears to be steadily moving away from the simplistic color-coding categorization of hydrogen and ammonia, there is still considerable debate around what system might replace these labels. The AEA’s certification system is built around the principle that markets can be enabled when high quality data is collected and communicated, rather than obscured behind a label. This panel discussion will discuss the benefits and challenges of providing such data, and the different approaches being taken across various international markets.

This session will focus on the various purposes that certification can serve, whether to meet consumer demands or the requirements of regulators.

The AEA’s ammonia certification system aims to enable ammonia producers, suppliers, and consumers to demonstrate product compliance (or non-compliance) with multiple different regulators and standards. This panel will explore some of these markets and their specific requirements, and discuss the challenge of satisfying different objectives within a single certification system.

Our speakers will unpack and explain the newly-released document in discussion with the audience.

In this second session, we explore two more key areas for our certification scheme, digging deeper into the nuance and complexity of the methodology, including the treatment of CCS & CCU (definitions, long-term versus short-term, accounting for emissions, etc.) and broader issues of Complexity (allocation of emissions between multiple co-products, methane pyrolysis, application of the concept of dynamic plant splitting for partial urea production and variable rates of CCS, etc..). Hincio representative John Bonk will introduce the topics, before the AEA’s certification co-chairs Nicholas Cook (CF Industries), Emile Herben (Yara Clean Ammonia), and Jakob Krummenacher (LSB Industries) lead an open audience discussion.

Before ammonia can be widely adopted as a maritime fuel, robust safety regulations and guidelines must be developed to govern vessel design, bunkering operations, and on-board storage and use. The industry has already developed such regulations for new fuels like LNG, LPG, and methanol. For ammonia – although the hazards are different – the process for developing these regulatory codes will be the same.

There is a strong case for gathering the lessons learned from previous development processes for new fuel regulations, and for asking how upcoming ammonia demonstration projects can best inform the swift development of a code for ammonia as a fuel. In this interactive workshop session, we explore the state of regulatory progress, and what is the roadmap ahead?

As energy systems drive towards decarbonization, research and development is in place to adopt ammonia as a fuel, including transportation and power generation segments. As a fuel, ammonia does not produce CO2 emissions when combusted directly, and the AEA is developing certification to account for the emissions associated with upstream production. To accelerate the global adoption of these technologies, a clear understanding regarding acceptable emission levels will be required, supporting public confidence in the use of ammonia as a low-emission fuel. In this interactive workshop session, we will present a series of case studies helping us to analyze how we can drive acceptance and ensure social license for ammonia combustion.
