Ammonia is an important carrier of hydrogen which is very interesting considering the search for alternative energy sources. The world is looking for ways to reduce our global carbon footprint, and this will give opportunities for ammonia. Preferred location for terminals are port areas, especially in situations where energy is obtained by solar energy and where ammonia is used as a way to transport this energy to less sunny parts where energy is needed. But how about the risks of storage, handling and transportation of ammonia? And what is the public image on the risks of ammonia, and how to deal with this. What can you do as ammonia (related) industries to improve safety, manage safety and how to improve your image.
