Yara, the world’s leading fertilizer company, and ENGIE have joined forces to test green hydrogen technology in fertilizer production.
Yara is working towards making carbon-free fertilizer, and clean hydrogen is the major enabler for making CO2-free green ammonia, which is the key ingredient for “green” fertilizer.
On 5 February, Yara and ENGIE agreed to carry out a feasibility study, the goal of which is to design a green hydrogen plant integrated with Yara’s existing ammonia plant in Pilbara, Western Australia.
The goal of the feasibility study is to convert the Pilbara ammonia plant from one that relies completely on natural gas for its hydrogen to one where a significant share of its hydrogen comes from renewable power. Reaching the goal will significantly reduce the plant’s CO2 emissions.
