Market Definition

Clean ammonia is produced using carbon-neutral or low-carbon technologies. It comprises both blue & green ammonia. Blue ammonia is produced using fossil fuels as an energy source via methane pyrolysis, and the carbon emitted during the process is sequestered. Green ammonia, on the other hand, is produced through the electrolysis of water, using electricity generated from renewable sources, such as solar & wind power. The clean aspect of ammonia primarily refers to the production of low-carbon hydrogen.

Ammonia is formed when hydrogen produced by either method, blue or green, is combined with nitrogen captured from the air. Further, with the increasing inclination to reduce carbon emission intensity in agriculture, maritime, and other sectors, the market for clean ammonia is anticipated to fuel at a significant rate in the forthcoming period.

Market Insights

The Global Clean (Blue & Green) Ammonia Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 23.56% during the forecast period, i.e., 2025-30. The Global Clean (Blue & Green) Ammonia Market is in its embryonic stage since the historical period, owing to the major focus on research & development & not much commercial application of clean ammonia among end-user industries. However, with the increasing investment by the companies towards the setup of clean ammonia production facilities, the market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast years.

Besides, clean ammonia finds applications across different industries, such as the food & beverage industry, agriculture, pharmaceutical, water & wastewater treatment, other chemicals, pulp & paper, etc. As a result, the need for quicker development & production is escalating and generating growth opportunities for the leading players to increase their research & development activities and show more participation in the overall growth of the Global Clean (Blue & Green) Ammonia Market.

In addition, the unceasing demand for fertilizers from the agriculture sector, coupled with rapidly expanding pharmaceutical & food & beverage manufacturing and water & wastewater treatment facilities, among others, are also expected to drive the commercial application of clean ammonia in the coming years.

Moreover, alarming emission from the excessive utilization of grey & brown ammonia is also escalating the necessity for clean ammonia as an alternative to address such concerns and bring environmental sustainability in the coming years. According to the Royal Society, around 1.8% of the total global carbon emission is generated by producing ammonia using traditional methods.

Furthermore, the elevating impact of climate change due to the astonishingly increasing carbon emissions across the globe is another aspect instigating different countries to adopt & integrate zero & low carbon technologies, mainly in heavy industrial processes. Not only the countries but several biggies in the market are re-analyzing their carbon footprint & investing substantially in the research & development & implementation of advanced carbon-neutral solutions. For instance:

  • In 2021, Yara Clean Ammonia, in collaboration with Aker Clean Hydrogen and Statkraft, successfully launched its HEGRA project, a green ammonia plant, that aims at reducing about 800,000 tons of CO¬2 emissions per year & aid in meeting Norway’s climate target of 2030.
  • In 2021, Linde plc & Hive Hydrogen reported the setup of a green ammonia plant with a production capacity of about 780,000 tons annually with a total investment of approximately USD4.6 billion in South Africa. Hive Hydrogen stated that this project would assist in making the country a low-carbon economy & further help in the country’s target of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 under South Africa’s Long-Term Low Emissions Development Strategy (SA-LEDs) 2050.
