Low-carbon ammonia with CO2 capture rates beyond 95% will play a key role in decarbonizing fertilizers and food industries. It also will be used as clean fuel to decarbonize power production and the shipping industry. Plus, it will serve as the most promising at-scale hydrogen carrier.

Designing and delivering low-carbon ammonia worldwide

While ammonia today is a key intermediary for industrial fertilizer production, low-carbon ammonia offers the promise of being a low-emission fuel for the power industry. Ammonia-fired gas turbines are being developed for power generation, which is expected to stimulate demand growth in marine fuels and other markets as technology is improved.

Demand for low-carbon ammonia production as a hydrogen transport vector is also expected to drive growth. Ammonia is a low-cost liquid energy vector and offers a very high volumetric energy density compared to other modes of hydrogen transportation.

As a leader in the global hydrogen market, Technip Energies supports its clients from designing and building low-carbon ammonia production units and import facilities. Our solutions range from early studies to lump-sum turnkey project delivery.

Through our decades-long expertise in delivering large ammonia and integrated ammonia/urea units worldwide, plus our access to leading low-carbon technology, we successfully positioned ourselves across the value chain of the low-carbon ammonia ecosystem.

Technip Energies has been a member of Topsoe Ammonia Technology Club of Contractors since the 1970s. 

Our approach:
  • Processing sound integration with associated U&O 
  • Optimizing levelized cost of ammonia 
  • Modular construction approach 

Developing ammonia cracking technology

To address new markets in the EU, Japan, Korea and Taiwan, Technip Energies is developing proprietary high-energy efficiency ammonia cracking technology to serve clients in the mobility, power and industrial sectors.

After transporting from source to consumer, ammonia may be cracked to separate hydrogen from nitrogen and support decarbonization of industrial sectors such as steel, cement, biorefineries, petrochemicals, carbon utilization facilities, power generation, industrial heating and more.
