Topsoe, a global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies, has signed a contract with CF Industries, the world’s largest producer of ammonia, for the licensing and engineering supporting a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study of a new low-carbon ammonia plant in Louisiana.

CF Industries is evaluating the project in collaboration with Mitsui & Co, one of the leading ammonia marketers in the world. Were the project to move forward, it would produce low-carbon ammonia for use as a decarbonised energy source.

Ammonia – either in the form of low-carbon ammonia or as an e-fuel – is expected to play a critical role in the world’s journey towards net zero: It can be transported using existing infrastructure; and it has multiple end-uses, not only as a fuel or hydrogen carrier but also to help decarbonise industrial processes like steel and cement production.

Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas, Topsoe, says: ‘We believe low-carbon ammonia helps unlock the door towards a net zero future. Our technology offers a cost-effective route to producing low carbon ammonia while also enabling carbon capture, at industrial proven scale. CF and Topsoe have a long-standing relationship spanning many decades and we are proud to extend our collaboration with this award.’
