The NEOM project will use about 4 GW of renewable power from solar, wind, and storage to produce 650 tpd of carbon-free hydrogen. Using Topsoe’s technology, the hydrogen will be converted into 3500 tpd – or 1.2 million tpy – of green ammonia.
The conversion of hydrogen into ammonia is an innovative approach to facilitate safe and reliable transport and storage of the green fuel, using existing, well-proven infrastructure.
Air Products will be the exclusive off-taker of the green ammonia produced at the NEOM site and intends to transport it around the world to be converted back into carbon-free hydrogen at local hydrogen refuelling stations. Air Products’ focus is to supply hydrogen fuel cell buses and trucks with carbon-free hydrogen by 2025. The distribution to end customers represents an additional investment of two billion dollars by Air Products. When implemented, the project avoids all emissions from the equivalent of over 700 000 cars, including over 3 million tpy of CO2.
“We are honoured to be part of this innovative world-scale project to reduce carbon emissions. Topsoe is focused on improving energy efficiency in today’s technologies while developing the solutions of the future. This is a great step ahead,” says Amy Hebert, Deputy CEO and EVP, Chemicals, Haldor Topsoe.
