Producer of ammonia, CF Industries Holdings and generator of renewable energy, NextEra Energy Resources have announced a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a joint venture to develop a zero-carbon-intensity hydrogen project at CF Industries’ Verdigris Complex in Oklahoma, USA.

The proposed project envisions a jointly owned 100-megawatt (MW) electrolysis plant at the Verdigris Complex that would be powered by a dedicated 450-MW renewable energy facility developed by NextEra Energy Resources. CF Industries would be the sole offtaker of 100% of the zero-carbon green hydrogen output from the site’s electrolyzers. The green hydrogen would be used to produce up to 100,000 tons per year of zero-carbon green ammonia, which would be facilitated by debottlenecking Verdigris’ ammonia plants.

Tony Will, president and chief executive officer, CF Industries Holdings says: ‘The use of decarbonised ammonia in agriculture offers the most certain, quantifiable and verifiable way to reduce the lifecycle carbon footprint of the food we eat. We are pleased to work with NextEra Energy Resources to explore how best green hydrogen could help accelerate the adoption of low- and zero-carbon ammonia and ammonia-derived nitrogen fertilizers in the United States and contribute to decarbonising the agriculture supply chain.’

‘NextEra Energy Resources is committed to leading the decarbonisation of the American economy, and the agriculture industry is fundamental to that goal. We are honoured to work with CF Industries to bring green hydrogen production to its Verdigris Complex while also creating additional jobs and economic benefits for the state of Oklahoma,’ adds Rebecca Kujawa, president and chief executive officer of NextEra Energy Resources.

A final investment decision has not been made for this project.
