Green Ammonia projects are underway by Yara and FertIberia
Many projects across the world are looking to radically reduce the GHG costs of producing ammonia by using renewable electricity for hydrolysis, rather than the energy & natural gas intensive Haber-Bosch process. This could reduce the GHG costs of N fertiliser, but the real drivers come from using ammonia in the energy chain.

Nitrogen is required annually by most crops (except pulses) to achieve yield and quality. Judging how much N to apply is a key part of nutrient management.
A range of products are commercially available that claim to enable more efficient nutrient uptake, allowing less nutrient to be applied as fertiliser.
Fertilisers, especially nitrogen, give some of the biggest environmental impacts of any inputs, from both their manufacture and their application. A range of innovative approaches are being developed to reduce the energy costs, greenhouse gas emmissions and waste associated with the production of fertilisers.
