First Ammonia and Uniper announced cooperation on green ammonia project in Texas

3 Nov 2023


Announced yesterday at the US – German Hydrogen Conference in Berlin, Uniper and First Ammonia are working together to deliver green ammonia to Uniper as part of a global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for ammonia consumers.  Each 100MW module will initially produce up to 100,000MTPA of green ammonia. This is the equivalent to 180,000-240,000MT of CO₂ avoided per annum when compared to grey ammonia. This zero-carbon ammonia will help Uniper accelerate the energy transition for its customers, Germany, and the wider European market. The plant deploys a unique Power to Ammonia concept based on the integration of the high temperature solid oxide electrolyzer cell (SOEC) with the exothermic ammonia synthesis process.

“We are excited to partner with Uniper to deliver green ammonia to the global market from our 100% carbon-free, innovative flagship project in Texas. This groundbreaking project brings together Texan renewable electricity with the flexibility of cutting-edge electrolyzers from our technology partner Topsoe in Denmark, the local knowledge and support of the Victoria Economic Development Corporation, and now the global perspective of Uniper as a front runner in the transition towards greener gases. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Uniper.” First Ammonia’s CEO, Joel Moser said.
