Power-to-X Project Topsoe Bags Technology Contract for First Dynamic Green Ammonia Plant in China
Mintal Hydrogen has selected Topsoe to supply technology for the first dynamic green ammonia plant in Baotou, Inner Mongolia, China. The unit is expected to produce 390,000 tons green ammonia annually.
Lyngby/Denmark – Topsoe has been chosen by Mintal Hydrogen to provide technology to the first dynamic green ammonia plant in China. The dynamic green ammonia plant is Topsoe’s first Power-to-X project in China and includes Topsoe’s process licensing, engineering design package, proprietary equipment, and catalysts.
Xiaolong Fu, General Manager, Mintal Hydrogen, said: “We are excited to partner with Topsoe, as they are the leading provider of technology for ammonia production and low carbon solutions in general. Establishing a commercial size green ammonia plant in Baotou, really is a breakthrough in China for producing carbon neutral fuels and chemicals. Naturally, we are very pleased, that we are now able to start construction of this landmark project, that will support China’s move to a greener economy.”
Topsoe will provide the plant’s dynamic ammonia technology to secure optimal production and adapt to the inherent fluctuations in power output from wind turbines. The clean power from wind turbines will be connected directly to the electrolysis unit making it more cost-effective than if involving a hydrogen storage.
About the green ammonia plant and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions
- The plant will be built in Baotou, Inner Mongolia
- The output is 390,000 tons green ammonia annually
- The green ammonia will annually replace app. 850,000 tons of coal and help reduce more than 2 million tons of CO2, 6.4 tons of sulfur dioxide, 3.2 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 3.2 tons of smoke and dust from being emitted into the atmosphere annually. (source: Mintal Hydrogen).
