Under the terms of the MoU, KBR plans to integrate Cummins' proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis technology into its green ammonia solution, K-GreeN®.
"We are very pleased to take this important step with Cummins," said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. "Collectively, our companies have the proprietary know-how and expertise that will allow us to offer an integrated green ammonia solution to clients worldwide and help with achieving their corporate ESG initiatives."
"Cummins is excited to explore working with KBR, whose leading ammonia technology can deliver tremendous value with our electrolysis technologies," said Amy Davis, Vice President and President of New Power at Cummins. "We see great potential to deploy large scale electrolyser solutions in green ammonia projects and working with KBR on an integrated solution provides value for our customers while enabling decarbonisation."
The MoU is a non-exclusive agreement under which KBR and Cummins will identify areas of deeper collaboration and specific opportunities worldwide.
Green ammonia is recognised as one of the most viable options to enable the global transition from fossil fuels to renewables and can be used directly as a carbon-free fertilizer, hydrogen transport fuel or chemical.
