Sembcorp to Power Japan’s Green Future with Eco-Friendly Ammonia from New India Plant

Singapore’s Sembcorp Green Hydrogen, a subsidiary of Sembcorp Industries, has signed a key agreement with two Japanese firms to supply green ammonia produced at a new facility in India. This marks a significant step towards a cleaner future for both nations.

The pact involves Sojitz Corporation and Kyushu Electric Power Co Inc., who will receive green ammonia from Sembcorp’s upcoming 200,000-metric tonne per annum (MTPA) plant in India. Land for the project has already been secured, and with a feasibility study completed, Sembcorp is moving forward with the front-end engineering design.

This collaboration between Sembcorp, Sojitz Corporation, and Kyushu Electric Power Co Inc. is a prime example of cross-border teamwork within the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF). It signifies a collective push to establish a low-carbon supply chain, ultimately accelerating the region’s transition towards a sustainable economy.

Sembcorp’s commitment to driving the energy transition is further bolstered by this project. The company leverages its extensive experience and strong presence in India, where it boasts a gross renewables portfolio of 4.7 GW. In fact, this agreement builds upon a previous collaboration signed in December 2023, where the three companies joined forces as a consortium to explore supplying green ammonia to Japan from India.

Green ammonia is produced using renewable energy sources like solar or wind power to create hydrogen, which is then combined with nitrogen to form ammonia. This clean-burning fuel offers a promising alternative to traditional, grey ammonia produced using fossil fuels. By adopting green ammonia, Japan can significantly reduce its carbon footprint and achieve its clean energy goals.

This project exemplifies how international collaboration can pave the way for a greener future. Sembcorp’s India plant, fueled by renewable energy, has the potential to become a major supplier of clean ammonia, empowering Japan’s transition to a sustainable future.
