ENGIE Australia & New Zealand and Yara take green hydrogen into the factory
ENGIE is a leader in the energy transition and aims to become a major player in renewable hydrogen. YARA’s purpose is feeding the planet responsibly. The two companies are joining forces in Australia to prove that the time to apply green hydrogen technology to industry is now. ENGIE and YARA, who is one of the world’s leading crop nutrition companies, agreed on February 5th to carry out a feasibility study with the goal of designing a green hydrogen plant that would be integrated with YARA’s existing ammonia plant in the Pilbara, Western Australia. Ammonia is a key ingredient in fertilizers. The goal is to transform the plant from one that relies completely on natural gas for hydrogen to one where a significant share of the hydrogen comes from renewable power. The resulting drop in CO2 emissions from the process would be massive The Pilbara has plenty of sun, and plenty of water – key ingredients to producing renewable hydrogen. ENGIE and YARA have the complimentary expertise and experience to take on such a complex project, but the key ingredient in this venture is their mutual commitment to a healthier planet and a sustainable future.
