FuelPositive Corp. (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTCQB: NHHHF) Using Green Ammonia to Fuel the Future; First Demonstrations Slated for Late-Summer 2022

  • The majority of the ammonia in the world is used for agricultural purposes
  • Agronomists advise farmers on the best way to utilize fertilizer while reducing costs and carbon dioxide emissions
  • Growing number of farmers are turning to technology and more sophisticated fertilizer products to increase yield and reduce emissions
  • FuelPositive plans to organize a green ammonia production prototype demonstration in late summer 2022, with two more slated for later in 2022

There is a common misconception in the farming community – if you use more fertilizer, you yield a bigger crop. However, for the best yield, it takes the right mixture of rain, sunshine, and soil conditions, which is where an agronomist comes in. Agronomists advise farmers on the best way to apply fertilizer to yield the maximum potential. When too much fertilizer is used, it can release large amounts of nitrous oxide (“NOx”), associated with the nitrogen in the fertilizer.  These NOx emissions are greenhouse gases that pollute the atmosphere and create “dead zones” on farms. They are emitted by all types of nitrogen fertilizers (organic or synthetic) – whether the nitrogen comes from animal manure or from manufactured ammonia produced using a carbon-free process or not.

Research has shown that a spike in nitrous oxide emissions occurs right after the spring thaw, when the moisture from the melting snow mixes with the residual nitrogen left behind from the fertilizer applied to the fields in the fall. Another short burst of nitrous oxide can occur in case of rainfall after application if the plant has not had the time to absorb the nitrogen. 

More and more farmers are turning to technology, including software, satellite images, moisture probes, and sensors that measure the electrical conductivity in the soil, while also adopting the use of more sophisticated fertilizer products and application methods to yield the most food while sinking the least amount of money into the process. These new methods are also reducing emissions of nitrate-related greenhouse gases – which are hundreds of times more potent than carbon dioxide (https://ibn.fm/TX0CA).

FuelPositive (TSX.V: NHHH) (OTCQB: NHHHF) has its eye on the need to reduce nitrous oxide emissions associated with fertilizers. The company is producing a modular, scalable and transportable green ammonia production system designed to be used on farms. The ammonia is green because it is produced using air, water and a sustainable electricity source, such as solar cells, windmills or hydro power. This eliminates the massive carbon dioxide pollution emitted by centralized refineries that use fossil fuels.

“We are proud to be producing green ammonia because it eliminates the CO2 emissions associated with traditional grey ammonia production. But we know we have to do more. Our next goal is to cut nitrous oxide emissions,” said Ian Clifford, FuelPositive CEO. 

“Supporting best farming practices for emission reduction is critical to our ability to fulfil our cradle-to-cradle commitment. We are working with our agriculture sector advisors to identify how to use our fertilizer in the least polluting way. We are looking for partnerships and acquisitions that will facilitate sustainable farming and we will be designing future pilot projects to work directly with scientists and farmers to continue this critical effort,” added Clifford

Meanwhile, FuelPositive is building its Phase 2 full-sized commercial prototype systems for green ammonia production. FuelPositive is currently on course for its first demonstration prototype production system to be deployed on a farm in Manitoba, Canada, in late summer 2022. The second and third systems are expected to be operational in pilot programs later in 2022.

“The more we talk with the farmer we will be working with, the more excited we are. We expect this demonstration pilot project to go forward in stages, first proving the green ammonia production technology and using the anhydrous ammonia the system will be producing as fertilizer. Later on, the farmer wants to use our green anhydrous ammonia as a replacement for fossil fuels in grain drying and to run the farm’s tractors, generators and other farm equipment and systems. Eventually we will work with the farmer to reduce and potentially eliminate nitrous oxide associated with fertilizer. This farm is aiming to be net negative,” said Clifford. 

At the heart of the FuelPositive “plant in a box” is its decentralized model. The production system sits right on the farm, cleanly producing all of the ammonia the farm requires. The green ammonia is used as fertilizer and as fuel. There is no more need to buy fertilizer through the unreliable ammonia supply chain that has seen massive inflation over the past number of years. For most farmers today, fertilizer is the most expensive item they buy to run their farms. Gaining control over the price and supply gives them security and the freedom to use the fertilizer in the cleanest possible way.

FuelPositive is also uniquely positioned to take on a more prominent role in the expanding global ammonia market, particularly in the green ammonia field. The global ammonia sector was valued at $52.71 billion in 2017 and is forecasted to reach $81.42 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.59% (https://ibn.fm/JOZ6B). The green ammonia market is projected to grow from $16 million in 2021 to $5.4 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 90.2%. The growth is expected to be driven by green ammonia’s potential as an alternative to fossil fuels.
