Renewable ammonia has been cited as a major component of the global hydrogen economy, and is could become the hydrogen carrier of choice once trade flows begin to start in the coming years.
Several large ports in Europe are building ammonia import plants as well as ammonia cracking facilities to extract the hydrogen before being further transported via pipeline.
Moreover, many countries (Canada, Namibia, Saudi Arabia for example) are due to export renewable ammonia in large quantities in the near future to maximise the ability for other regions, especially Europe, to take advantage of a large renewable resource elsewhere in the world.
