Low carbon emissions targets and the concept of a hydrogen economy have opened the door to a massive increase in ammonia trade. NGLStrategy’s seaborne trade outlook investigates the impact of new demand outlets for ammonia and what the implications will be for the shipping market.

On top of ammonia’s traditional use as a fertiliser, chemical and explosives feedstock, new uses of ammonia are being developed for:
• Co-firing with coal in power stations
• Use as a bunker fuel
• Use as an economic seaborne carrier of hydrogen
New projects have been announced to supply green and blue ammonia to the uses above with governments and regional authorities being involved in the plans and financial backing.

  • Stay ahead of the developments in new demand sectors for ammonia with quarterly updates.
  • Understand how the changing landscape will shape overall demand for hydrogen and the role of ammonia
  • Learn how quickly the new outlets are expected to develop and the relative demand/ location of new projects
