SABIC Agri-nutrients Sends First Commercial Shipment of Low-carbon Ammonia to Taiwan Fertilizer Company
SABIC Agri-Nutrients Company (SABIC AN), a public joint-stock company owned 50.1% by SABIC, has sent 5,000 MT of the first commercial shipment of low-carbon ammonia to Taiwan Fertilizer Co. (TFC).
Abdulrahman Shamsaddin, CEO, SABIC AN, said: "The shipment of low-carbon ammonia reflects our commitment to delivering low-carbon solutions to our customers and helping them achieve their net-zero targets in various areas such as clean energy transitions and low carbon chemicals / fertilizer solutions.
"We have already delivered such shipments to several markets such as Japan, South Korea, and India in line with our aspirations to become a leading player in the low-carbon ammonia market.
"We are looking to transform our business to help address urgent global challenges through efficient carbon management, and our growth strategy supports a circular carbon economy vision where all value chains of carbon-containing products loop back."
Dr Huang Yao Hsing, CEO, TFC said: "TFC has been devoting itself to all possible solutions to achieve the ultimate goal of net zero for years and the arrival of this low-carbon ammonia shipment is a significant milestone to be recorded.
"By supplying it to the downstream industries including fertilizers and chemicals, low-carbon ammonia presents one of the best solutions to pursue carbon neutrality and as the leading supplier of ammonia in Taiwan, we have the responsibility to introduce it to the market."
In 2022, SABIC AN and Aramco obtained the world’s first independent certification of low-carbon ammonia and clean hydrogen production from TÜV Rheinland, a leading independent testing, inspection, and certification agency based in Germany.
The latest shipment of low-carbon ammonia also underscores SABIC’s public commitment to be carbon neutral by 2050.
