Ammonia / Fertilizer

Hydrogen Production

The electrolyser technology from Nel was originally developed specifically for ammonia production, and some of the largest electrolyser plants ever built, were built using the technology from Nel. Today, the ammonia/fertilizer industry consumes more than 30 million metric tons of hydrogen annually, making it the biggest consumer by far. However, all the hydrogen for ammonia is produced via fossil sources such as natural gas and coal. Nel has recently introduced a large scale electrolysis concept, which is cost competitive with reformers, and with the low electricity prices achieved with solar and wind can also make the TCO beneficial. As ammonia producers are seeking to reduce their carbon emissions and improve the predictability of the business case, Nel can offer the technology solutions to enable the change.
