Simplifier:GREEN AMMONIA



Green ammonia is essentially ammonia produced in an environmentally friendly way. Here’s how it works in simple terms:

1. What is Green Ammonia?

• Green ammonia is just like regular ammonia, a chemical made up of nitrogen and hydrogen, but it’s made using clean energy sources instead of fossil fuels.

2. How is it Produced?

• Water Electrolysis: This method uses electricity from renewable energy sources like solar or wind power to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen is then used to make ammonia.

• Haber-Bosch Synthesis: This traditional method is adapted for green ammonia by using the hydrogen produced from electrolysis. It combines this hydrogen with nitrogen from the air under high pressure and temperature to form ammonia.

3. Why Use Green Ammonia?

• Eco-Friendly: Since green ammonia uses renewable energy, it doesn’t produce carbon emissions like traditional methods, making it better for the environment.

• Versatile Uses: It can be used as a clean fuel that doesn’t emit carbon when used, as a way to store and transport energy, and as a green fertilizer that reduces emissions from agriculture.

Overall, green ammonia represents a significant step towards cleaner industrial processes and helps in tackling challenges related to energy storage and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

INDIA AND JAPAN STRENGTHEN CLEAN ENERGY TIES WITH NEW AGREEMENT

A major agreement has been signed between an Indian renewable energy company and a Japanese industrial group to supply green ammonia from India to Japan. This collaboration is part of the broader India-Japan Clean Energy Partnership, highlighting the shared commitment to sustainable energy solutions and strengthening bilateral relations in the clean energy sector. This move aligns with global efforts to transition away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy sources.
