Thyssenkrupp and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company have signed an MoU to collaborate on ammonia-cracking technology enabling the extraction of hydrogen from ammonia on an industrial scale.
As stipulated in the agreement, Thyssenkrupp’s Uhde unit, which specializes in chemical engineering, will provide ammonia cracking technology which is already being used in more than 130 chemicals plants worldwide.
“The partnership with ADNOC is of great importance. There currently does not exist a cracker of this size,” Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chief Executive Cord Landsmann told Reuters.
The companies will also assess possibilities for the supply of green ammonia from the United Arab Emirates to large crackling sites worldwide.
“We are committed to strengthening our position as a reliable supplier of lower carbon-intensive energy, creating new revenue streams and growing the global market for hydrogen,” ADNOC executive Musabbeh Al Kaabi said in a statement.
