Toyo in feasibility study for green ammonia in Indonesia

Toyo Engineering Corp. has received a contract from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Government of Japan, and will start a feasibility study for green ammonia production in Indonesia, under the collaboration with Pupuk Indonesia Holding Company (PIHC) being a government enterprise in Indonesia, and Pupuk Iskandar Muda (PIM) which is a subsidiary company under PIHC.

During the study, Toyo says it will study feasibility for green ammonia production in Indonesia at the existing fertiliser plants owned and operated by PIM, and would like to establish a plan for the optimal development, with consideration for the selection of appropriate Renewable Energy power source, effective countermeasure against the fluctuation of Renewable Energy power supply etc.

As a fuel for co-combustion at coal power plant, vessel bunkering fuel, and as transportation and storage measure of hydrogen, ammonia is expected to play a significant role for decarbonisation goals, as it does not emit CO2 at the combustion. The Japanese government announced a target to utilise ammonia as a fuel for 3 million tonnes/year, in year 2030.

Toyo has constructed the fertiliser plant by PIM in the 2000s and plans to develop a competitive green ammonia production facility by modifying the existing plant in the most optimum way.

In addition, future decarbonisation of other fertiliser plants under PIHC by applying the similar scheme is also scope of the study.
