BASF and Yara Clean Ammonia are collaborating on a joint study to develop and construct a world-scale low-carbon blue ammonia production facility with carbon capture in the U.S. Gulf Coast region.

The companies are looking into the feasibility of a plant with a total capacity of 1.2 to 1.4 MTPA to serve the growing global demand for low-carbon ammonia.

Birdseye view of tanks.Magnus Krogh Ankarstrand, president of Yara Clean Ammonia says: ‘In line with Yara Clean Ammonia’s strategy, we are working systematically to develop asset-backed supply to decarbonize agriculture as well as serving new clean ammonia segments such as shipping fuel, power production and ammonia as a hydrogen carrier.’

‘Our existing Verbund sites in the region with integrated material flows and advanced infrastructure would be ideally suited for the integration of a new world-scale ammonia facility that has the potential to significantly improve the carbon footprint of both our own operations and the various industries we serve,’ adds Ramkumar Dhruva, president monomers division, BASF.

BASF and Yara are long-standing collaboration partners and successfully operating a joint world-scale ammonia plant at BASF’s site in Freeport, Texas, USA.

The companies plan to complete the feasibility study on the low-carbon blue ammonia production facility by end of 2023.
