USA: Zero CO2 Emissions KBR Wins Ammonia Technology Contract for Monolith Materials’ Project in USA
Monolith Materials has selected KBR’s ammonia technology for its fertiliser project in Hallam, Nebraska, USA. The project is expected to use hydrogen as feedstock from Monolith Materials’ emission-free facility to produce carbon black and ammonia from natural gas, air and 100 % renewable power.
Houston/USA – KBR has recently announced that it has been awarded a contract for an ammonia synthesis loop (synloop) by Monolith Materials for its fertiliser project in Hallam, Nebraska, USA.
Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide a technology license, basic engineering design package, proprietary equipment and catalyst for a 930 metric tonnes per day ammonia synloop project. This project will consume hydrogen as feedstock from an emission-free, commercial-scale facility developed by Monolith Materials to produce both carbon black and ammonia from natural gas, air and 100 % renewable power.
The Monolith Materials process converts natural gas into carbon and hydrogen with zero carbon oxide emissions. The carbon is used to produce carbon black, a vital material found in many everyday products including tires, belts/hoses, plastics, batteries and inks and the hydrogen to produce ammonia for fertiliser and chemical applications.
“KBR’s energy-efficient ammonia technology is the first choice of ammonia producers globally. We are excited to be part of Monolith’s environmentally transformative fertiliser project in Hallam,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology. “Our sustainable process technology solutions are leading the energy transition industry globally.”
