Green ammonia – Independence from imports and fossil resources
As the diagram below shows, ammonia is conventionally produced using natural gas as a fuel. Unfortunately, this accounts for around 1.4% of global fossil-fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
But there is an alternative. At thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions we developed a technology that can produce green ammonia from just water, air and electricity generated from renewables. The process involved, alkaline water electrolysis (AWE), is based on the proven chlor-alkali electrode technology developed by thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers, whose expertise and experience in electrolysis technology and EPC execution are based on more than 500 projects with over 10 GW capacity installed worldwide.
