SABIC Gains World’s First Independent Certification for Blue Hydrogen
SABIC Agri-Nutrients Co., a Saudi Basic Industries Corp. subsidiary, has gained the world’s first independent certification for blue hydrogen and ammonia production.
TÜV Rheinland, leading independent testing, inspection, and certification agency based in Germany, has certified the blue hydrogen and ammonia production facilities of SABIC AN and Saudi Arabian Oil Co.
It recognized SABIC’s Jubail facility for producing 37,800 tons of blue ammonia and Aramco’s wholly owned refinery in the same city, known as SASREF, for 8,075 tons of blue hydrogen.

Commenting on the certification, Bob Maughon, SABIC’s executive vice president of sustainability, technology and innovation, said: "People will see more examples of that from us to come.”
The chemical giant is on a path to ensure that it reduces its carbon neutrality by 20 percent compared to its 2018 baseline.
The company is also on track to achieve net-zero for scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2050.
SABIC currently emits approximately 53 million tons to 55 million tons of carbon per year. These figures are aligned with the Vision 2030 blueprint, which aims to reduce carbon emissions by 278 million tons per year by 2030.
