QatarEnergy will build the world’s largest “blue” ammonia plant, which is expected to start operations in the first quarter of 2026 and to produce 1.2 million tonnes per year.
According to QatarEnergy subsidiary, Industries Qatar, the cost of the Ammonia-7 project is approximately $1.06 billion, according to a press release issued by QatarEnergy subsidiary, Industries Qatar.
The facility will capture and sequester 1.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year through the manufacturing process, with chief executive and state minister for energy Saad al-Kaabi, saying that:
We see an increasing interest in using ammonia as fuel, driven by the need to reduce CO2 emissions in the energy ecosystem
Recently, Fluxys, Advario Stolthaven Antwerp and Advario Gas Terminal joined forces to study the feasibility of building an open-access green ammonia import terminal at the Port of Antwerp-Bruges in Belgium.
The plan is to offer the market a robust solution to its growing demands for importing and storing green energy and raw materials against a backdrop of ongoing decarbonisation.
