Norway’s Yara, the world’s largest ammonia distributor, and Canadian energy infrastructure company, Enbridge, plan to invest up to $2.9 billion (€2.6 billion) to build a low-carbon blue ammonia production plant in Texas, USA. 

The plant is to be built at the Enbridge Ingleside Energy Center near Corpus Christi. It will use carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology to ensure the removal of most carbon emissions. 

The production facility will be capable of supplying low-carbon ammonia to meet growing demand and has an expected capacity of 1.2 million to 1.4 million tons (1.42 million tonnes) per year.  

Around 95% of the carbon dioxide generated from the production process is anticipated to be captured and transported to nearby permanent geologic storage. 

Magnus Krogh Ankarstrand, president of Yara Clean Ammonia, says: ‘This project will significantly contribute to our strategy of decarbonising agriculture as well as serving new clean ammonia segments such as shipping fuel, power production and ammonia as a hydrogen carrier.’
