Stamicarbon Joins KeyState Feasibility Study

Nov. 16, 2022
The project is expected to produce hydrogen, automotive-grade urea and ammonia, while capturing and permanently storing carbon dioxide emissions associated with hydrogen production.

Stamicarbon signs an agreement for a feasibility study with Pennsylvania-based KeyState Natural Gas Synthesis to become its urea and DEF (diesel exhaust fluid) technology licensor. The project is expected to produce hydrogen, automotive-grade urea, and ammonia, while capturing and permanently storing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions associated with hydrogen production.

The study reportedly is one of Pennsylvania’s first initiatives for producing low-carbon hydrogen and products like carbon capture and storage (CCS). Using the “latest CCS technology,” carbon will be removed during the process and sequestered permanently underground.

Keystate CEO Perry Babb says in a press release, “This KeyState project aligns with the job creation and economic impact objectives contained in the Inflation Reduction Act, which supports Appalachian communities that can benefit from the energy transition. Emission reduction and great job creation can happen together and make a tremendous difference in many areas.”
