Petronas Canada is teaming up with Japan-based Itochu Corp. to explore the feasibility of building a new, US$1.3-billion facility just outside Edmonton that would produce low-carbon ammonia, a source of hydrogen fuel, for export to Asian markets. Blue ammonia would be produced by capturing and storing carbon dioxide before it can be emitted into the atmostphere. The two companies are hoping to capitalize on a global surge of interest in hydrogen and are now in the process of studying costs and transportation options to determine if the project is financially viable. If it goes ahead, the companies say, construction would start in 2023 and the plant would come online in 2027.
