Ammonia

Amonia Amonia

Ammonia is the world’s most energy-intensive commodity chemical, responsible for 1% – 2% of global energy consumption and 1.8% of global CO₂ emissions.  Approximately 90% of the carbon emissions are from the production of hydrogen − for every ton of hydrogen, 9 tons of CO₂ are also produced.

Due to its substantial carbon footprint, the ammonia industry is coming under increased scrutiny as a target for industrial decarbonization efforts. As the Energy Transition gains momentum, ammonia producers will face increased pressure to develop and implement individually tailored decarbonization strategies while staying competitive.

At the same time the industry is at the verge of new opportunities as green ammonia is being considered as a low carbon energy vector. Ammonia may replace fossil fuels in transportation markets such as bunker fuels. It may be used in engines and power plants as a low carbon fuel. And, it has potential as a carrier for low carbon hydrogen.

For the industry to successfully manage these risks and opportunities, multiple elements must be in place. We explore this complexity in ACRIS.

ACRIS Ammonia Dashboard

The Ammonia Advisian Carbon Risk Index Service (ACRIS) dashboard is an intuitive, web-enabled dashboard. Users can track changes in the ACRIS score by region and by archetype, and drill-down to see current and future events that impact the ACRIS score.

The ACRIS score is based on a multi-factor variable analysis that models risk in five vectors: climate, regulatory, technological, environmental, and political. These risk vectors are then analyzed through a lens of trade flows and carbon vulnerability.

Ammonia Abatement Curves

A carbon abatement curve is a graphical representation showing a range of technical and non-technical measures which are available to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases produced at a generic facility. The chart ranks the options by level of carbon abated and cost per ton of CO2 equivalent abated.
