Fertiliser manufacturers aim to decarbonise their production facilities, with some pledges made for full decarbonisation of fertiliser production within the timeframe 2035-2050. Since the last meeting of the International Fertiliser Society, various renewable ammonia projects have moved from announcement to construction or early operation. Furthermore, policy developments in Europe and the United States are likely to accelerate the deployment of renewable ammonia, and low carbon ammonia in general. This paper discusses how various fertiliser manufacturers plan to abate carbon emissions, with electrolyser capacities up to 24 MW. In addition, developments from new ammonia energy sectors are covered.
