Ammonia. Green hydrogen is still clawing its way into the mainstream and here comes yet another powerful new decarbonization trend: green ammonia. If that’s news to you, join the club. Green ammonia was a big mystery just two years ago and now all of a sudden it’s the Next Big Thing — and not just for making the grass grow, either

 

Join me and over 700 companies and thought-leaders at the Ammonia and Hydrogen https://bit.ly/3lb7XRH professionals group.

Charley, those who believe ammonia isn't another clean-energy fad designed to bleed electricity customers of their hard-earned money haven't "gone nuts". They've simply fallen victim to oil-industry marketing for another fake-green fuel made from natural gas - using a process that will make climate change even faster than it is already.

The pretty pink pipe in the upper left corner of your diagram, above, shows that natural gas (aka, methane) is a principal feedstock of the process. Now, look at the pretty blue pipe at the bottom - besides water (H2O), it's emitting carbon dioxide (CO2), a potent greenhouse gas.

The diagram reveals producing ammonia as a complicated, energy-intensive process that creates carbon emissions - even more than generating  electricity by burning natural gas. It's almost as if the point is to sell as much fossil fuel as possible, even if it's at the expense of environmental health. Isn't it?
