Ammonia in
    agriculture

AmmONia Market - Agricultural fertilizer

Ammonia, NH3, is a nitrogen fertilizer that is stable, readily available for plant uptake, and does not release carbon dioxide gas.

Fertilizer Supply Chain

Fertilizer supply chain diagram - showing how traditional methods emit CO2 in nearly every step

Although ammonia itself does not contain carbon, ammonia is traditionally manufactured from hydrogen carriers that do contain carbon, creating millions of tons of carbon dioxide emissions each year. From every step of the distribution process before the ammonia reaches the farm to be used as fertilizer, carbon dioxide is emitted to the atmosphere.

Issues with the Traditional Fertilizer Supply Chain

AMMPOWER SOLUTION

Shortening the fertilizer Supply Chain, 2 ways

  1. Small-scale, local ammonia production

AmmPower's first ammonia fertilizer supply chain diagram, where the IAMM unit is located at the distributor and the only CO2 emissions are from local transportation to the farm.

   2. Small-scale, on-site ammonia production

AmmPower's second ammonia fertilizer supply chain diagram, where the IAMM unit is located on-site at the end user, showing that zero CO2 emissions are generated.

AmmPower is developing small-scale, containerized ammonia production unitsThis enables both farmers and agricultural retailers to:

Targets

Carbon-Free Ammonia
Decarbonize/electrify traditionally “hard-to-abate” sectors with green ammonia synthesis technology and utilize carbon credit incentives to further bring down costs.
Decentrilize Ammonia Production
Shorten the supply chain to bring ammonia production on-site or closer to the end user, reducing logistical issues and creating independence from the market price of ammonia.
Economic Feasibility
Make smaller scale ammonia production units located closer to the end user to be economically viable and provide a reasonable return on investment.
