Renewable ammonia exports from Angola by 2024

Angola’s state-owned energy company Sonangol has signed an agreement with two German engineering firms to build a 280,000 tonne per year renewable ammonia production plant on the country’s northern coast. Exports to the EU are expected to begin in 2024, with a supply of hydroelectricity already secured.

Green ammonia in Angola

Australia-based Minbos Resources and Angola's Ministry of Agriculture agreed on a plan to develop green ammonia and fertiliser production in the African country. Powered by the Capanda Hydroelectric Dam, an ammonia & fertiliser production facility will be built within heavy road transport distance of Angola's key agricultural and mining regions. The announcement is one of many in 2021 that focuses on turning existing ammonia importers into producers (and in some cases, export powerhouses!).
