The energy transition is the defining challenge of the twenty-first century, requiring a shift from fossil-based energy sources to a zero-carbon system by 2050. Green ammonia emerges as a key player in this transition, revolutionizing various sectors with its unique properties and applications.
Governments worldwide are investing in hydrogen roadmaps, setting the stage for a sustainable future. With a global shift toward dispersed renewable energy sources, ammonia is positioned as a crucial player in meeting increasing demand. Europe and Asia are becoming key demand centers, while regions like Australia and some African states are poised to be major suppliers. Low carbon ammonia is anticipated to dominate new capacity after 2025, becoming the primary commodity for transporting renewable energy globally.
While ammonia production currently contributes significantly to global energy consumption and carbon emissions, the development of a sustainable supply chain is underway. The traditional Haber-Bosch synthesis process, resulting in "gray ammonia," is energy-intensive. However, integrating carbon capture and storage (CCS) can lead to the production of "blue," low-carbon ammonia. The use of green hydrogen, produced through water electrolysis and renewable energy, yields "green" ammonia, virtually free of carbon dioxide. Sustainable, green ammonia production relies on increased energy efficiency, requiring substantial investments and supportive policy frameworks.
Global distribution and storage of ammonia are essential components of a green ammonia economy. Flow control equipment, including pumps and valves, plays a central role in ensuring safe and efficient transfer throughout the supply chain. Managing critical temperatures and pressures during processing and controlling loading rates during transportation are critical functions. As ammonia gains traction as a zero-carbon energy carrier, the importance of flow control equipment is set to increase.
At Celeros FT, we understand the critical role of pumps and valves in maintaining safety and efficiency in the distribution and storage of ammonia. Our comprehensive range of products, including the VS6 submersible pump, BB3 pumps from ClydeUnion Pumps, and the M303 and RQ8 gate valves, Compact Expanding Gate Valve, and DANFLO surge relief valves from M&J Valve, are designed to withstand operational extremes and the caustic nature of ammonia. These products ensure safety, prevent leaks, and facilitate the even distribution of ammonia within storage facilities, contributing to the seamless adoption of green ammonia in diverse applications.
Join us in shaping a sustainable future with green ammonia - a catalyst for the energy transition!
