Adnoc Makes Historic Delivery of Low-Carbon Ammonia to Japan

World’s First Certified Bulk Shipment of Low-Carbon Ammonia Marks Milestone in Decarbonization Efforts

< In a landmark achievement, Adnoc has successfully delivered the world’s first certified bulk commercial shipment of low-carbon ammonia, facilitated by carbon capture and storage (CCS), to Mitsui for utilization in clean-power generation in Japan. The certification process, meticulously conducted by TÜV SÜD, underscores Adnoc’s commitment to decarbonization and climate technologies, supported by a significant investment of $23 billion (AED84 billion). This groundbreaking delivery signifies a pivotal step towards decarbonizing hard-to-abate sectors and advancing global low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia value chains. 

The low-carbon ammonia cargo, sourced from Fertiglobe’s facility in Abu Dhabi’s Ruwais Industrial City, highlights Adnoc’s pioneering efforts in hydrogen production, aiming to capture 5% of the global low-carbon hydrogen market by 2030. The collaboration between Adnoc and Mitsui, supported by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), exemplifies the strategic partnership between the UAE and Japan in promoting clean energy solutions. Additionally, Adnoc’s ambitious initiatives include the design of a facility in Abu Dhabi to produce up to 360,000 tonnes of low-carbon hydrogen annually, further solidifying its commitment to sustainable energy transition.
