Green ammonia defined in updated Green Hydrogen Standard
The Green Hydrogen Organisation (GH2) has today (January 13) announced that green ammonia has been defined in its updated Green Hydrogen Standard.
Ammonia produced with green hydrogen of no more than 0.3kg of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) per kg of ammonia will be classed as green ammonia by GH2.
Building on the methodology proposed by the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy (IPHE), the new definition and emissions threshold will allow producers to demonstrate the climate credentials of their products.
“We are delighted that the Green Hydrogen Standard now defines green ammonia which is key to decarbonising our food and energy system,” said Jonas Moberg, CEO of GH2. “The standard is essential to establishing the global rules for the production, trade, and use of sustainable zero-carbon fuels like green hydrogen and green ammonia.”
