Japanese initiatives to establish Fuel Ammonia Supply Chain

Following brief introduction of CFAA and Marubeni, I would like to present how Japanese government plans to support to realize clean ammonia supply chain for Japan and then draft definition of Clean Ammonia announced by CFAA last year. Some of our thoughts on the Harmonization are presented in the last part of my session using slides titled “International Certification Scheme”.

Marubeni & Pembina: low-carbon ammonia production in Alberta, Canada

Marubeni & Pembina Pipeline Corporation will jointly develop a low-carbon ammonia supply chain from Western Canada to Japan. CCS-based hydrogen production & ammonia plants will be built adjacent to Pembina’s existing complex near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, with ammonia to be shipped by rail to Canada’s west coast for export.

Oman consortium to invest $1 billion in green export project

SalalaH2's consortium partners (OQ, Marubeni, Linde and Dutco) will invest $1 billion bringing their green product export hub to life in Salalah, southern Oman. First announced in October 2021, the project features 1 GW of wind and solar capacity (new build & existing), which will power 400 MW of electrolysers, feeding an existing ammonia production plant owned & operated by OQ.

Woodside outlines scale for green ammonia project in Tasmania

Woodside Energy secured land this week for its H2TAS project in Bell Bay, Tasmania. A long-term lease on a partially-cleared project site nearby the Bell Bay Advanced Manufacturing Zone will be home to up to 1.7 GW of electrolysers, and a target production of 200,000 tonnes per year green ammonia. Last month Woodside also announced the H2Perth project: a world-scale, 1,500 tonnes per day hydrogen production facility aimed at local markets for refueling fuel cell vehicles, and international markets via export in the form of liquefied hydrogen or ammonia.

Exploring an ammonia fuel supply chain between Australia and Japan

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.

The Ammonia Wrap: two new large-scale ammonia projects in the UAE and more

Welcome to the Ammonia Wrap: a summary of all the latest announcements, news items and publications about ammonia energy. This week: two new large-scale ammonia projects in the UAE, RWE, BASF combine for 2 GW "Offshore-to-X" project, green ammonia exports from Tasmania, coal co-combustion trials in Japan, Japanese shipping industry chases decarbonisation, South Korean companies join together in local green ammonia consortium, new funding for ammonia-from-wastewater research and Horisont Energi and Equinor join forces for the Polaris project.

METI Forms Ammonia Energy Council

Last week, Japan’s Ministry of Energy, Trade, and Industry (METI) announced the formation of a council to work on the implementation of ammonia as an energy commodity. The announcement came on the same day as a speech by Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga in which he established 2050 as the date certain for Japan to achieve carbon-neutrality. That was Monday October 26, 2020. The council held its first meeting on Tuesday October 27. The Council consists of four entities from the public sector and ten from the private sector. Members include companies that have previously been identified with the development of ammonia energy systems, including EPC firm JGC, capital goods manufacturer IHI, electric utility JERA, and shipping company NYK Line. The membership also reflects what appears to be the group’s central mission: positioning Japan as ammonia energy’s global leader via the dissemination of technology and the development of supply chains.

Industry consortium announces feasibility study for co-firing ammonia in thermal power plants

In March 2020, IHI Corporation, JERA Co., and Marubeni Corporation announced a feasibility study "to evaluate possible applications for the co-firing of ammonia in thermal power plants." The Japanese companies have contracted with NEDO to deliver detailed technical and economic analysis on the use of ammonia as a direct fuel for power generation. In addition, with support from Woodside Energy in Australia, they "will examine the construction and operation of world-scale ammonia facilities and the optimisation of supply chain costs" to support "large-scale export of hydrogen as ammonia."
