Trucks and Tool Bars match Yielder® NFuel and Green Play Ammonia.
Dec. 3, 2020, Volvo goes thumbs up on
Electric Trucks. Feb. 17,
2020, Bezos Earth Fund Announces the Need for
Yielder® Clean Carbon NFuel.
In March of 2020 Fossil Fuel Pricing drops to sub zero.
2020 Thanksgiving Time, Volvo and Tesla go head to head and
Tesla announces line haul trucking at 621 miles to the charge.
The New Era is on the way….and Saudi Arabia agrees with the

For 2019, What are the
facts available for Ammonia Production?
Fertilizer dominates the demand for fossil fuel ammonia at 88% of the
total 16,000 ,000 metric tonnes actually used.
The Ammonia Energy
Association seminar attendees stated 80% of the production went to
of fossil fuel ammonia is 14,080,000 metric tonnes is for fertilizer.
US plants operated
at 90% of capacity in 2019. Two plants are idled and two plants also use
Alternate uses of
Anhydrous Ammonia at 12% are not for energy in the USA but rather are
listed as explosives, fabrics, metallurgical treatments, plastics and
US Ammonia is
consumed at the rate of 16 000,000 metric tonnes annual in
In the US, 35 plants
in 16 states ….not 40 plants produce 14,000,000 metric tonnes.
employed at the 35 plants seem low at 1,600. Actually not the whole
story to get the product on the land.
To my knowledge Green
Ammonia is a research supply of no major significance in the US.
and Saudi Arabia are changing the supply of Green Ammonia.
The seaport LNG
bunkers of North America will be soon filled with Green Ammonia built in
Australia and in as little as 7 to 10 years.
In the United States,
Methane Gas is critical for 60% of the ammonia produced comes from
LOT….Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas.
Natural Gas which is
a combination 18 different gases is converted to Methane Gas, CH4 to
reform hydrogen into the NH3 Molecule.
The mining losses of
methane and 18 different gases must be considered in a Zero Carbon goal.
Maybe 30% of the total Methane CH4 and CO2 emission
comes from mining.
A good example of
Natural Gas conversion to Methane is found at Jayhawk Process in
Ulysses, Kansas on the Hugoton Gas Field.
Canada’s Nutrien which
owns the southern Caribbean, Trinidad Tobago facility delivers fossil fuel
ammonia to Louisiana.
Nutrien and to a small degree CF, combines to deliver 91% of all the
compressed gas NH3, imported into the US.
The 2019 average
trading price was $230 per short ton fob Gulf coast, New Orleans. $253 per
The pricing trend is
downward from 2015 at $481 per short ton FOB Gulf Coast. $529 per metric
Thus ammonia pricing
has dropped 50% in 5 years because US production has increased at an
increasing rate. Imports have dropped from 30% to 12% in 5 short years.
The last large scale
plant (2,500 tonne per day) to go on line was at Freeport Texas in 2018.
No new ammonia
plants are planned until 2022. This is assumed to be a fossil fuel
Any approach in
planning a new ammonia plant must consider the extremely high likelihood
that a Green Ammonia Play is required to compete.
The zero carbon goal
of Biden Administration will rapidly make their plant obsolete.
possible date for Small Scale Ammonia in the US is 2023 which is a
function of Covid 19 delay with the Green Bank funding, plus the Bezos
Earth Fund delay.
The Green Play
Ammonia Plants (First Ten) will combine the Yielder® NFuel Energy Plant
to provide 10 tons per day of which 5 tons is for agriculture fertilizer
and 5 tons per day is for energy.
We will ask the USGS
to now maintain records for Non-Fossil Fuel Ammonia or Green Ammonia….Not
low Carbon Ammonia. Ammonia built with renewables.
Thus Zero Carbon
Ammonia will receive several investment and tax incentives to improve
the Global Climate.
This means a major
growth by 2050 from 150 million metric tons to 1.5 billion metric tons,
and of which most of the growth attributed to Zero Carbon Ammonia.
Zero Carbon Ammonia
will grow strongly as Saudi Arabia begins production of the NOEM project
at 5,000 tonnes per day.
By 2050 600 million
metric tonnes to 800 million metric tonnes will required for the green
fuel of Ocean shipping.
The NH3 technology
will allow wholesale conversion of LNG seaport bunkers.
Europe, the Middle
East, Australia and Eastern Asia recognizes the wholesale change. The US
is a laggard due to the large fossil fuel industry and Trump
administration non recognition of climate change solutions like ammonia.
It is important to segregate the energy source to build ammonia since the
goals have changed.
applications to land in relation to the 10X growth of ammonia will
decrease to 2.7% with no allowance for efficiency of GHG. This is for of
all the ammonia produced in the US by 2050. Even though 88% of the
ammonia produced today is used is used to raise crops. The
transportation and energy sector will be the largest consumer.
In this time frame,
We anticipate a double in the use of directly applied ammonia to the
land will return to 60% to 70% of all the nitrogen applied since it is
the only product that will provide economical control of GHG.
Anhydrous Ammonia will
become the primary energy source to reduce GHG on the land and it will be
popular in the transportation system.
Electric Vehicles will
be powered by the Wind of Green Play Ammonia providing the Megawatts to
run a fleet of trucks. Circa Tesla and Volvo.
Wind Built Green
Ammonia is the storage battery for the turbine generators operating at 80
to 90% efficiency that will build the Green Amps for the EV Volvo and
