MOSCOW (MRC) -- Technology major, Topsoe has been chosen as technology provider to Ascension Clean Energy (ACE), an industrial scale low carbon hydrogen-ammonia joint venture project in Louisiana, US, by Clean Hydrogen Works (CHW), Denbury Carbon Solutions and Hafnia, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.
“The projected USD7.5 billion project is expected to produce 7.2 million tonnes of low carbon ammonia per year in Louisiana, US,” Topsoe wrote in a statement. To deliver the 7.2 million metric tons of clean ammonia annually ACE will use Topsoe’s integrated hydrogen and ammonia solutions, including state-of-the-art SynCOR™ auto-thermal reforming (ATR) technology, the statement noted.
“This industry-leading technology is targeting a reduction of up to 98% of all carbon dioxide, which is contracted to be permanently sequestered by Denbury Carbon Solutions,” Topsoe said in the statement. Commenting on the development, Peter Vang Christensen, Senior Vice President Technology, Topsoe, said,“Low carbon solutions are vital if we are to succeed with the energy transition, and this project will have a positive impact in leading the way for large-scale decarbonization of our global energy infrastructure.
“We are delighted to have been selected to support this project that will showcase not only Topsoe’s world leading technology but also ACE’s role in the transition to decarbonized fuels.” On the West Bank of the Mississippi River in Louisiana’s Ascension Parish, ACE will be sited on a prime 1,700-acre location near existing infrastructure, with direct access to the Mississippi River, Topsoe said while adding that a final investment decision regarding ACE is expected in 2024.
We remind, Topsoe, a global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies, has been appointed by SGP BioEnergy to support the production of renewable fuels in South America’s largest upcoming renewable fuels plant, located in Panama. Topsoe will provide its innovative HydroFlex technology to produce SAF and RD, while also deploying its H2bridge technology to ensure the plant has a net-zero greenhouse gas footprint, recycling green hydrogen generated by waste carbon and production by-product back into the plant’s operations.
