Recognised as one of the world’s largest tonnage ports, the company said, the export potential of hydrogen and ammonia from this region could make it a powerhouse for zero-carbon technologies and help scale hydrogen technologies in the maritime industry.

This could be crucial for the wider US market as well with the port situated along the Mississippi Rover – a major network route for ships and trade.

Enabling the production of hydrogen and ammonia here could have drastic results on the US hydrogen market and turn the nation into a powerhouse for the clean energy carrier.

Once completed, the facility will have a capacity of up to 4,000 tonnes of green ammonia per day and thus could provide the fuel for the growing demand within the maritime industry.

It makes sense to put a green ammonia plant in Louisiana; that's where a lot of US ammonia comes from anyway (made from gulf-coast fossil gas) and there is an ammonia pipeline running from there into the corn-belt (for the fertilizer market). 


That is also a natural location for blue ammonia production (from fossil gas), since the CO2 could be sequestered in off-shore gas wells.


Note that 4,000 tons of ammonia per day converts to 1.04 GWatts (HHV) of power flow (before allowing for energy loss).  That's about 80% of the capacity of the 10 inch diameter Gulf Central ammonia pipeline (source).
