Topsoe and Mintal Hydrogen Energy Technology have revealed they are set to develop a green ammonia Power-to-X (PtX) plant in China.
Mintal Hydrogen has chosen Topsoe as its technology partner for the project in Baotou, which is set to begin production in 2025.
It is claimed by the companies that this is the first dynamic green hydrogen plant in China, with a first-phase capacity of 1,800 tonnes of green ammonia per day, and 390,000 tonnes annually.
The green ammonia produced is expected to replace approximately 850,000 tonnes of coal and reduce more than 2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from being emitted annually.
Providing dynamic ammonia technology to secure optimal production and adapt to the inherent fluctuations in power output from wind turbines, the plant will be Topsoe’s first PtX plant in China.
Topsoe and Mintal Hydrogen’s proposed plant will align with the Industrial Sector Peak Carbon Implementation Plan, which aims to substitute hydrogen from coal for hydrogen from electrolysis powered by IRE.
