Description of the Event
While the world powers are feverishly trying to transition to green energy, we are currently flaring over three trillion cubic feet of natural gas per year emitting roughly 250,000 tonnes of CO2 per day. This is not just unnecessary green-house gas emissions, but a missed opportunity, because the natural gas (NG) could be used to produce a valuable feed-stock for nitrogen based-fertilizers: Ammonia (NH3).
The NG-to-NH3 process is over a hundred years old and used to produce over half of all NH3 consumed today. The demand for NH3 (as fertilizer) is expected to grow by 65 million tonnes or 40% over the next 5 years and coincidentally, Russia & Ukraine produce roughly 10% of the global supply and Europe produces another 13% (from Russian natural gas). The increasing demand and reduced supply, has sent a shock-wave around the world and NH3 prices have tripled in the last year. A thousand cubic feet of natural gas valued $8 is now valued at $36 in the form of NH3!
NH3 is not just a feed-stock for Fertilizer.
· The United States Department of Energy has funded the West Central Outreach and Research Center at the University of Minnesota through RTI International since 2013 to advance technologies in the production of Green Ammonia (as a fuel).
· In 2018, a number of companies came together to form the Ammonia Energy Association to develop and promote NH3 as a means of storing and transporting hydrogen (H2).
· The maritime industry started promoting NH3 in 2020 as a carbon-free fuel to replace marine gas oil.
You are invited by CyaNH3 and partners from around the world to attend an invitation-only Webinar and learn about:
· Back-ground and business-case for NH3
· R&D funded by the United States Department of Energy
· Small scale onshore plants for vented, flared, or waste gas
· Development in offshore solutions for stranded gas
· R&D to help transition from Blue to Green NH3
