GE and IHI of Japan announced a Memorandum of Understanding for collaborative development of an ammonia gas turbine business roadmap.
GE and IHI of Japan announced a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for collaborative development of an ammonia gas turbine business roadmap. The roadmap will support the use of ammonia as a carbon-free fuel to lower carbon emissions in both existing and new gas turbines. According to the MOU, both companies will conduct research on the marketplace volume of ammonia as well as feasibility studies for ammonia as feedstock for gas turbine power plant installations in Japan and across Asia.
Ammonia is utilized today as a fertilizer, chemical raw material and used recently as a fuel, effectively produced in industrial applications. In addition, when used as a carrier for hydrogen, ammonia enables an efficient, lower-cost transport and storage of a fuel which can be used directly in natural gas power generation. Since ammonia contains no carbon, it does not emit carbon dioxide when burned and may therefore enhance the power sector’s efforts in reducing carbon emissions.
“GE is continuing to advance our gas power technologies towards near zero-carbon power generation and part of this evolution may involve the use of ammonia as a fuel in order to reduce CO2 emissions,” said Ramesh Singaram, President and CEO for GE Gas Power in Asia.
