Proman And Mitsubishi Sign MOU On New Clean Ammonia Plant - Carbon Herald

Proman, a leading global petrochemical company, has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mitsubishi Corporation to collaborate on the development of a groundbreaking ammonia plant in Lake Charles, Louisiana. 

This new facility will aim to produce around 1.2 million tonnes per year of clean ammonia, making it one of the largest of its kind in the world. The plant will incorporate cutting-edge carbon capture and sequestration technology, allowing for the production of ultra-low-carbon ammonia. 

This development aligns with Proman’s commitment to sustainability and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The proposed ammonia plant will be located on Proman’s existing site in Lake Charles, adjacent to its natural gas-to-methanol plant, which is also currently being developed.

The signing ceremony took place at the Third International Conference on Fuel Ammonia (CFA), which was organized by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry.

The purpose of this collaboration is to produce ammonia that will primarily be exported to Japan as a clean fuel, specifically to reduce emissions from coal-fired power plants. This initiative aligns with Japan’s national strategy to increase the consumption of ammonia domestically and contribute to achieving its decarbonization goals.

This partnership between Proman and Mitsubishi Corporation signifies a significant step towards developing sustainable solutions and constructing plants that prioritize environmentally friendly alternatives. Both companies are looking forward to this collaboration, with Proman’s CEO, David Cassidy, expressing his excitement about the project.

He stated that Proman is pleased to be involved in the creation of a world-scale, ultra-low-carbon ammonia facility alongside Mitsubishi Corporation. Proman, already a prominent fertilizer producer, is eager to expand its global production and further emphasize the significant role ammonia plays as a fertilizer, fuel, and decarbonized energy source in the future.
