Ammonia bunkering in Egypt & beyond

ITOCHU & Orascom Construction have partnered to develop an ammonia bunkering hub at the Suez Canal in Egypt. In other news, Fertiglobe and AD Ports Group will leverage the latter’s logistics expertise and infrastructure in the UAE to strengthen Fertiglobe’s ability to store and transport ammonia & urea.


OCI Global: renewable ammonia in Texas

OCI will offtake electrolytic hydrogen feedstock from New Fortress Energy’s ZeroParks facility from 2025, allowing for the production of 80,000 tonnes per year of renewable ammonia at its Beaumont plant in Texas. This “over-the-fence” feedstock approach will also be employed in the development of a new multi-million tonne per year, greenfield ammonia plant in Beaumont, with Linde to own & operate an adjacent, CCS-based hydrogen production plant.


Updated German hydrogen strategy includes target for hydrogen & ammonia “sprinter” power plants

Germany’s updated national hydrogen strategy forecasts that hydrogen demand in the country will skyrocket by 2045, including new demand for hydrogen and ammonia power generation. An auction process ending in 2026 will spur the construction of 4.4 GW of “sprinter” power plants around the country, generating electricity from pure hydrogen or ammonia. This will support the continued integration of renewable energy into Germany’s national grid.


India: new state-level hydrogen & ammonia policy, national hydrogen standard

The state government of Andhra Pradesh launched its new hydrogen and ammonia policy in June, including a production target of up to 2 million tonnes per year of renewable ammonia, plus a raft of incentives to attract project developers to the Indian state.

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines: forging ahead with a comprehensive strategy for maritime ammonia

Earlier this year, the Japanese shipping giant declared a strategic direction which included a substantial role for low carbon ammonia. In our latest episode of Maritime Insights we explored the scope of this new strategy, MOL’s future fuels roadmap, and the wide range of initiatives in play to construct a full value chain for fuel ammonia (including mega-scale production projects).


Creating Ammonia Value Chain for the Smooth Transition toward Carbon Neutrality

According to the IHI’s ‘Group Management Policies 2023’ announced this May, Clean Energy business represented by fuel ammonia and others is defined as Development-focus Business, which would drive our future growth in parallel with Aero Engines and Space business. Our aim is to build and enhance the value of our entire ammonia value chain by implementing direct ammonia utilization technology especially for power sector, preparing infrastructure for transportation and storage and also developing new technology for green ammonia production. In the session, IHI’s effort to implement total value chain of ammonia is introduced, especially to use ammonia in thermal power…
