Terrestrial Energy and KBR sign agreement to develop zero-emissions hydrogen and ammonia production processes

By Mary Page Bailey |

Terrestrial Energy  (Oakville, Ont., Canada) announced that it has signed an agreement with KBR, Inc. (Houston) to investigate the application of zero-emission thermal energy for hydrogen and ammonia production.

Through the collaboration, KBR’s market-leading energy advisory services team and Terrestrial Energy will analyze the integration of Terrestrial Energy’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) nuclear cogeneration technology for use in green ammonia and hydrogen production. KBR’s program management and integrator solutions teams will further support the development of commercial frameworks for future deployment and routes to market for ammonia production technology with IMSR cogeneration.

Terrestrial Energy’s IMSR plant is a cogeneration facility that supplies zero-emissions thermal energy at high-temperature for direct use in industrial process and for high efficiency on-site electric power generation. The plant uses the company’s IMSR technology, a Generation IV fission technology, which drives the plant’s 585o C thermal energy supply, a heat quality essential for broad industrial use, including green hydrogen and ammonia production.

“This agreement connects Terrestrial Energy and its sector-leading IMSR plant cogeneration technology to the world leaders in ammonia technology. It represents a gateway industrial relationship to the production of affordable and zero-emissions ammonia. Its success will deliver a major global decarbonization objective to a hard-to-abate industrial sector and drive affordable food supply,” said Simon Irish, CEO of Terrestrial Energy. “We’re delighted to be collaborating with KBR to deliver on our shared technological, commercial and market vision.”

“This agreement with Terrestrial Energy will leverage KBR’s growing capabilities and aligns with our mission to develop new technologies and deliver solutions that help customers accomplish their most critical business objectives with sustainability at the core,” said Andrew Barrie, President of KBR’s Government Solutions EMEA business.
