KBR has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Cummins Inc. to offer a complete and integrated solution to produce ammonia from renewable sources, commonly referred to as green ammonia.
KBR intends to incorporate Cummins’ proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolysis technology into its patented green ammonia solution, K-GreeN®, under the terms of the MoU. KBR and Cummins both have specific strengths and market leadership in ammonia technology and electrolysis, which when combined aim to provide a robust and sustainable green ammonia offering for clients around the world.
“We are very pleased to take this important step with Cummins, Collectively, our companies have the proprietary knowhow and expertise that will allow us to offer an integrated green ammonia solution to clients worldwide and help with achieving their corporate ESG initiatives.”Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology
“Cummins is excited to explore working with KBR, whose leading ammonia technology can deliver tremendous value with our electrolysis technologies, We see great potential to deploy large scale electrolyzer solutions in green ammonia projects and working with KBR on an integrated solution provides value for our customers while enabling decarbonization.”Amy Davis, Vice President and President of New Power at Cummins.
The MoU is a non-exclusive agreement under which KBR and Cummins will identify areas of deeper collaboration and specific opportunities worldwide.
KBR has been licensing, designing and engineering ammonia plants around the world since 1943. Green ammonia is recognized as one of the most viable options to enable the global transition from fossil fuels to renewables and can be used directly as a carbon-free fertilizer, hydrogen transport fuel or chemical.
