Yara and Kyushu Electric Power announce clean ammonia collaboration in Japan

By Mary Page Bailey |

Yara International ASA (Oslo, Norway) and Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc (Kyushu), a Japan-based power generation company, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on establishing Clean Ammonia supply chains in Japan to reduce CO2 emission at Kyushu’s thermal power generation in Kyushu Area, Japan. Under the MoU, Yara and Kyushu are targeting collaboration in the following areas:

  • To jointly develop Clean Ammonia end-to-end supply chain to Kyushu’s coal thermal power generation plants in the Kyushu region, Japan
  • To jointly develop a receiving and distribution system of Clean Ammonia for usage in a wide range of fields around the Kyushu region, Japan

Japan targets 3 million tons of ammonia import demand for fuel by 2030 and 30 million tonnes by 2050 as part of its measures to cut CO2 emissions and reach carbon neutrality by 2050. Ammonia does not emit carbon dioxide during combustion and is seen as an effective future energy source. Blue ammonia is derived from a carbon capture and storage process (CCS), while green ammonia is produced carbon free by using hydrogen sourced from renewable energy as feedstock. The term clean ammonia comprises both blue and green ammonia.
