Technology status: ammonia production from electrolysis-based hydrogen

Electrolysis-based ammonia production peaked worldwide around 1970, before the economies of scale and cheap gas feedstock led to its decline. With decarbonization and climate-neutral industrial processes now a critical priority, electrolysis-based ammonia production has re-emerged as a long-term solution. From a base of 10,000 tonnes per year worldwide production in 2020, as much as 100 million tonnes per year of electrolysis-based ammonia could be produced by the end of this decade, driven by a dramatic roll-out of renewable energy generation and installed electrolyzer capacity.

Low-carbon ammonia at LSB Industries

LSB Industries is the fifth largest ammonia producer in the US and operates three manufacturing facilities in Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Alabama. This year, the company announced its sustainability priorities and two major projects designed to reduce the carbon intensity of its ammonia production. The projects will reduce the companies carbon footprint by over 25% and consist of the construction of a carbon capture and sequestration facility to permanently sequester 450k metric tons of CO2 annually and the retrofitting of an ammonia plant to handle clean hydrogen from eletrolysis which will turn ~15% of the plant production into zero-carbon ammonia.

LSB Industries: renewable ammonia in Oklahoma

LSB Industries will partner with thyssenkrupp and Bloom Energy to develop renewable ammonia production at its existing facility in Pryor, Oklahoma. 30 MW of electrolysers will feed the production of 30,000 tonnes of renewable ammonia per year, with two electrolyser technologies (solid-oxide and alkaline) working side-by-side.

LSB Industries to produce CCS ammonia in Arkansas

LSB Industries’ existing El Dorado ammonia production plant will be retrofitted to allow capture and sequestration of CO2 emissions as part of a new partnership with Lapis Energy. Once operational in 2025, more than 375,000 tonnes CCS ammonia will be produced per year - about 75% of El Dorado’s total ammonia production capacity. El Dorado becomes the third publicly announced CCS ammonia plant in the US, with CF Industries and Air Products announcing projects last year.
