INOX Air Products (INOX AP) has announced that it has signed a major deal with the Government of Maharashtra (a state in western India) for constructing a large-scale green ammonia plant with a planned outlay of $3bn.
Set to be commissioned within a three to five year timeline, the plant is expected to produce 500,000 metric tonnes per annum (MTPA) of renewable produced liquid ammonia.
As a climate-neutral hydrogen carrier, liquid ammonia could play a key role in the global value chain for sustainable green hydrogen.
Ammonia contains nearly 20% hydrogen by weight, making it one of the most efficient hydrogen carriers. This high density means it can transport and store more hydrogen in a smaller volume compared to other forms, such as compressed or liquefied hydrogen.
