KBR announced that its K-GreeN® technology has been selected by Avina Clean Hydrogen for its green ammonia project in the U.S.
Under the terms of the contracts, KBR will provide the process technology license and engineering design for a grassroots project to produce 2,200 metric tons per day of green ammonia.
As a hydrogen carrier, ammonia is widely acknowledged to play a leading role in decarbonizing power generation and marine transport. The KBR design for Avina encompasses a fully integrated green ammonia solution from electrolysis to ammonia synthesis.
“We are honored that Avina has selected our technology for the largest green ammonia project in North America to date,” said Doug Kelly. “This project underscores that green ammonia can be produced economically at a commercial scale and we look forward to working closely with Avina to ensure a successful implementation.”
“We have set out on an ambitious ESG journey and our selection of KBR as the green ammonia technology licensor is a concrete step towards meeting our objectives,” said Vishal Shah. “Our decision was driven both by KBR’s innovative technology as well as their ability to deliver a complete solution”.
