- Ammonia made by fossil fuels accounts for approximately 5% of world's gas consumption.
- Industry reliance on ammonia necessitates shift to 'green ammonia' – produced using renewable hydrogen.
- Cross-sector alliances aim to make this 'green hydrogen' a viable alternative to reduce emissions and generate large-scale investment.
Ammonia may not be the antidote to fossil fuels, but it will make a huge contribution to reducing our dependence on them. This article aims to answer some important questions: what is green ammonia; what is the role of hydrogen; what does it mean for food production; and how can it turn shipping green.
With investments, public funding and frameworks, we can cut emissions from energy-intensive sectors, decarbonize food, enable the green hydrogen economy and create a multi-billion-dollar market for green energy.
