Q: Is much low carbon ammonia currently produced?
Pangea SI Expert: Now that all unfortunately so. Approximately 98% or more of the hydrogen produced today is produced is black, grey or brown hydrogen, so and obviously, but you know in a large portion of the hydrogen produced today is produced for ammonia production so. There is one example of a large capacity production of blue ammonia. I believe it’s the new trend planned in Canada which is connected to the sequestration infrastructure available in the Edmonton area, and I believe that nutrient is considering expanding the production of blue ammonia. Some pink ammonia pink slash turquoise ammonia is being slated to be produced in combination with carbon black. Production through the Monolith Material Project in Nebraska. I’m not exactly sure what the status of that project is, and then, as I mentioned before, there are a number of smaller, smaller-scale projects. Green ammonia projects are located globally from South America to Australia to North America. However well, it’s based. Unannounced projects will likely not see the light of the day unless the basic challenges related to economics and lack of infrastructure and regulations so really overcome.
“Estimates say ammonia production is responsible for in excess of 1% of the total share of CO2 emissions. Some estimates put it at even at 4%. So, there’s really no future green ward scenario or decarbonized industry if we do not considerably reduce the CO2 emissions associated with ammonia production.”
