World’s largest green hydrogen project will convert renewable energy to ammonia then back to hydrogen
Air Products, ACWA Power, and NEOM announced a new $5B green hydrogen facility
that will be sited in NEOM, Saudi Arabia. The project will use 4 GW of
renewable power from solar, wind and storage to produce 650 tons of carbon-free
hydrogen per day using Halidor Topsoe’s ammonia technology, which allows it to
be transported safely using existing technology, according to the company.
said the hydrogen will be converted into 3,500 tons per day of green ammonia
for transportation and then converted back into hydrogen to power buses and
trucks around the world.
planned “green ammonia loop” will be the world’s largest, on a par with the
Gulf Coast Ammonia facility to be built in Texas, US, which will also use
Topsoe ammonia technology
Products will be the off-taker of the green ammonia produced at the NEOM site
and intends to transport it around the world to be converted back into hydrogen
at local hydrogen refueling stations.
