Japan's Jera has executed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for potential collaboration for the joint project development and sales and purchase of clean ammonia with Yara Clean Ammonia Norge, a subsidiary of Norway’s Yara International, Jera said on January 17.
Under the MoU, JERA and Yara will study the viability of sales and purchase of clean ammonia for the 20% co-firing operations at the Hekinan thermal power plant unit 4 in Japan, which is targeted to commence in 2027. The required volume is expected to be up to 500,000 metric tons/year. The companies will also look to develop a blue ammonia project on the US Gulf Coast.
