Yara Clean Ammonia has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Japanese company JERA to decarbonise coalfired powerplant and develop blue ammonia production in the US Gulf. The two companies also plan to collaborate on blue ammonia production in the US Gulf and to produce more than 1 million metric tons per annum (mtpa).

In the MoU, Yara Clean Ammonia and JERA have agreed to jointly study the viability to collaborate in the following areas:

  • The sales and purchase of clean ammonia for the 20% co-firing operations at Hekinan Thermal Power Plant Unit 4, which is targeted to commence in 2027. The required volume is expected to be up to 500,000 mtpa.
  • The joint development of a 1 million plus mtpa blue ammonia project which YCA is considering developing in the US Gulf Coast.

Svein Tore Holsether, CEO of Yara International says: ‘I’m very pleased that Yara and JERA are signing a MoU for the joint project development, sales and purchase of clean ammonia. Yara has the capacity to produce and ship clean ammonia all over the world and we are a reliable, safe and long-term supplier. We are highly committed to this partnership and look forward to joining forces with JERA to drive the transformation to a net-zero world,’

‘We are pleased to work together with Yara on this significant journey towards decarbonising the industry, and I am confident that Yara will take an important role in establishing a new clean fuel ammonia value chain which JERA seeks, through its experience in the operation throughout the ammonia supply chain from the production to transportation and storage in the existing market. JERA will continue its own efforts as well as to take hands with our partners in pursuit of our endeavour to realise and accelerate not only the decarbonisation of the Japanese energy industry but also to solve the energy-related issues that the world is facing,’ adds Yukio Kani, corporate vice president at JERA.
