Toyo Engineering Corp. (Tokyo) received a contract from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Government of Japan and will start a feasibility study (FS) for green ammonia production in Indonesia, under the collaboration with Pupuk Indonesia Holding Company (PIHC) being a government enterprise in Indonesia, and Pupuk Iskandar Muda (PIM) which is a subsidiary company under PIHC.
During the FS, TOYO will study feasibility for green ammonia production in Indonesia at the existing fertilizer plants owned and operated by PIM, and would like to establish a plan for the optimal development, with consideration for the selection of appropriate Renewable Energy power source, effective countermeasure against the fluctuation of Renewable Energy power supply etc.
As a fuel for co-combustion at coal power plant, vessel bunkering fuel, and as transportation and storage measure of hydrogen, ammonia is expected to play a significant role for decarbonization goals, as it does not emit CO2 at the combustion. The Japanese Government announced a target to utilize ammonia as a fuel for 3 million Ton per year, in year 2030.
TOYO constructed the fertilizer plant by PIM in the 2000s. Utilizing its experience and knowledge, TOYO plans to develop a competitive green ammonia production facility by modifying the existing plant in the most optimum way.
In addition, future decarbonization of other fertilizer plants under PIHC by applying the similar scheme is also scope of the FS.
