Robust Business Case Leveraging Ceres Low Temperature SOEC Technology

As the global transition toward renewable energy intensifies, the demand for green ammonia is expected to rise, creating a strong market for green ammonia producers. Green ammonia produced from electrolysis is a promising solution for low carbon ammonia because when hydrogen is produced using renewable electricity it can be considered zero carbon.  Most of the cost of green ammonia comes from the cost of green hydrogen as feedstock.  Solid oxide electrolysis can produce hydrogen at the highest efficiency compared to other available electrolysis routes and this efficiency can be further enhanced by integration of waste heat stream from ammonia synthesis…

Thorium-powered ammonia production in Indonesia

In our September episode of Ammonia Project Features, Pupuk Kaltim and Copenhagen Atomics joined us to explore their new, nuclear-powered ammonia project in Bontang, East Borneo. Cophenagen’s Thorium-fed, Onion Core® reactor design will be integrated with solid oxide electrolysers and an existing ammonia synthesis loop to produce more than one million tonnes per year of low-carbon ammonia.

Nuclear-powered ammonia production in Indonesia

A consortium of Danish and Indonesian companies - including Topsoe, Copenhagen Atomics, Pupuk and Pertamina - will collaborate to develop a 1 million tonnes per year, nuclear-powered ammonia project for fertiliser production in Bontang, Indonesia. Copenhagen Atomics’ thorium molten salt reactors will power 1 GW of solid oxide electrolysis capacity.
