Horizons podcast: Avoiding pand-ammonia

How to kick-start a global low-carbon ammonia industry

1 minute read

On this month's Horizons podcast, we're joined by Magnus Ankarstrand, President of Yara Clean Ammonia at Yara International, and Mariana MoreiraPrincipal Research Analyst, Chemicals of the Energy Transition at Wood Mackenzie. 

Industrial ammonia is a key part of modern life. As a basis of nitrogen fertilisers, as fibres for our clothes, as the cleaning products we use and to refrigerate our food and cool our homes, ammonia’s impact goes beyond just food production.

As we race to decarbonise, the energy-intensive means of ammonia production need to be addressed. Low-carbon ammonia has a place in the energy transition, but the industry will be reluctant to commit without guaranteed demand.

Policymakers have the power to build the low-carbon ammonia market, a necessary step to ensure existing producers evolve, or else face the consequences as the world reaches out for net zero.
