Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide a technology license, basic engineering design package, proprietary equipment and catalyst for a 930 tpd ammonia synloop project. This project will consume hydrogen as feedstock from an emission-free, commercial-scale facility developed by Monolith Materials to produce both carbon black and ammonia from natural gas, air and 100% renewable power.
The Monolith Materials process converts natural gas into carbon and hydrogen with zero carbon oxide emissions. The carbon is used to produce carbon black, a vital material found in many everyday products including tires, belts/hoses, plastics, batteries and inks and the hydrogen to produce ammonia for fertilizer and chemical applications.
“KBR's energy-efficient ammonia technology is the first choice of ammonia producers globally. We are excited to be part of Monolith’s environmentally transformative fertilizer project in Hallam,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. “Our sustainable process technology solutions are leading the energy transition industry globally.”
KBR’s innovative ammonia technology is valued for its low energy usage, higher reliability and lower capital costs. KBR has licensed, engineered or constructed 244 ammonia plants worldwide.
