In a landmark achievement, the first shipment of independently-certified low-carbon ammonia from Saudi Arabia has arrived in Japan for use as fuel in power generation. It represents another milestone in the development of this lower-carbon energy solution.
The shipment is the result of a successful multiparty collaboration across the low-carbon ammonia value chain. The ammonia was produced by Sabic Agri-Nutrients (Sabic AN) with feedstock from Aramco, and sold by Aramco Trading Company to the Fuji Oil Company (FOC).
The low-carbon ammonia that reached Japan is part of broader efforts by Aramco and Sabic AN to establish a global supply network for this lower-carbon fuel. Aramco and Sabic AN aim to supply low-carbon ammonia to other players to meet their early demand needs.
