Blue ammonia is produced by combining nitrogen with ‘blue’ hydrogen obtained from natural gas feedstocks. The carbon dioxide generated during hydrogen production is captured and stored. Ammonia serves as a low-carbon fuel applicable to various industrial uses such as transportation, power generation, and sectors like steel, cement, and fertilizer production.


Major Driver: Blue Ammonia Production’s Innovative Infrastructure and Sustainability 

Concerning infrastructure, the production of blue ammonia integrates carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. By making use of current facilities and energy sources, companies engaged in blue ammonia production can substantially reduce carbon emissions. It is worth mentioning that companies such as CF Industries are currently capturing carbon for urea production. Improvements in CCS technology enhance the efficiency of carbon capture, thereby contributing to increased sustainability. 

Furthermore, the scalability of blue ammonia is facilitated through the utilization of existing infrastructure, and its transportation is simplified as it does not necessitate special vessels, making use of already accessible terminals. This technological advancement, combined with existing infrastructure, renders the scaling up of blue ammonia practical.

Fastest-Growing Technology: Gas Partial Oxidation

Gas Partial Oxidation stands out as a pivotal method in blue ammonia production, involving the controlled combustion of a hydrocarbon feedstock, typically natural gas, in the presence of oxygen. This process yields synthesis gas (syngas), a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide, which serves as the precursor for ammonia synthesis. GPO not only ensures efficient hydrogen production but also facilitates the capture of CO2 emissions, aligning with global efforts to combat climate change.

Fastest-Growing Country: South Korea

The South Korean blue ammonia market, driven by the gas partial oxidation process, is experiencing significant growth as the nation strives to transition towards a sustainable and low-carbon economy. Blue ammonia production, through the gas partial oxidation method, presents a promising avenue for meeting the country’s energy needs while addressing environmental concerns.

With regard to market rivalry, gaining a competitive advantage will depend on distinguishing oneself through technology, geographic positioning, and cost-effectiveness. Some of the leading companies in the market are Ma’aden, OCI Global, POSCO Holdings Inc, etc.
