HYDERABAD, India, SINGAPORE and KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, October 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentari, the clean energy division of Petronas (Malaysia) and AM Green, created by the founders of Greenko, today announced the signing of definitive agreements with a subsidiary of GIC to produce 5 million tonnes per year (MTPA) of green ammonia in 2030, which is equivalent to approximately 1 MTPA of green hydrogen.
The partnership will focus on the production of green ammonia in multiple locations in India, which is expected to accelerate efforts to achieve net zero emissions targets in India as well as in OECD markets. Exports of green ammonia to major OECD markets such as Germany, Japan, South Korea and Singapore are expected to begin in late 2025.
The green ammonia will be produced by a unit of AM Green, called AM Green Ammonia Holdings. Following the investment from Gentari, GIC and AM Green, the unit will be a fully funded platform that will invest, in phases, in the Indian regions of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh.
The 5 MTPA of green ammonia will be equivalent to about 1 MTPA of green hydrogen, which is one-fifth of India's green hydrogen production target under the country's National Green Hydrogen Mission and 10% of the target European import of green hydrogen by 2030.
Achieving this scale of production will place the new company among the world's pioneers in the production of ecological ammonia on a large scale and at a competitive cost.
Green ammonia production by AM Green will be supported by renewable energy supplied 24 hours a day through offtake agreements with renowned counterparts and electrolyzers manufactured by another AM Green unit (AM Green Technology
AM Green will also produce green molecules such as green methanol, green caustic soda, green chlorine, biofuels and various high value-added green chemicals in its subsidiary AM Green Molecules. Additionally, AM Green will also host a joint venture with John Cockerill of Belgium to manufacture electrolyzers at its subsidiary AM Green Technology.
The completion of the transaction is subject to the fulfillment of relevant and customary conditions precedent. Citigroup Global Market India Pvt. Ltd. and Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas have acted as exclusive financial and legal advisors to AM Green for this transaction.
