Australian Green Ammonia Project Will Feature Clariant Catalyst

March 21, 2022
Clariant supplies Casale with its AmoMax-Casale ammonia synthesis catalyst for The Hydrogen Utility’s major green ammonia project in Australia.

The project will commence with two pilot plants at H2U’s Eyre Peninsula Gateway in South Australia, with the aim of expanding the technology to various plants, industry sectors and regions.

Clariant’s innovative ammonia synthesis catalyst “AmoMax-Casale” is selected for a major green ammonia project, being jointly developed by The Hydrogen Utility (H2U), an Australian developer of green hydrogen infrastructure and Casale, according to Clariant. The project will commence with two pilot plants at H2U’s Eyre Peninsula Gateway in South Australia, with the aim of expanding the technology to various plants, industry sectors and regions.

Federico Zardi, CEO at Casale, says, “The world needs to turn the page and fight climate change. In this context, Casale is ready to accept the challenge and to contribute to the development of sustainable plants to produce ammonia and derivatives by reducing or even eliminating emissions.”

Jointly developed by Clariant and Casale for use in Casale ammonia converters, AmoMax-Casale is an evolution of the wustite-based catalyst AmoMax 10. While retaining the same resistance to aging, poisoning and mechanical strength, AmoMax-Casale is significantly more active, according to the company. The catalyst’s optimized promoter package reportedly provides a larger active surface area and improved diffusion properties, resulting in a 30% higher efficiency index compared to the wustite-based reference. This allows a reduction of the loop pressure and recycle rates and/or an increase in ammonia production, according to Clariant.
