Yara Clean Ammonia (YCA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Japanese company JERA to decarbonize coalfired powerplant and develop blue ammonia production in the US Gulf.
Yara Clean Ammonia has been nominated as a potential supplier in JERA’s tender to supply up to 500 kilotons (kt) of clean ammonia to the Hekinan Thermal Power Plant Unit 4. This is JERA’s first commercial scale co-firing project.
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).
Both companies are committed to scaling up clean energy sources and we are looking forward to partner with JERA in developing blue ammonia production in the US Gulf
said President of Yara Clean Ammonia, Magnus Krogh Ankarstrand.
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.
