Countries across the world are increasingly turning toward green ammonia to achieve their zero-emission targets. It is increasingly used for power generation to overcome challenges such as high expenditure and carbon emissions posed by fossil fuels. The rise in research and development is observed in the market to develop affordable and highly efficient solutions. Consumers, organizations, and governments across the world are exhibiting concerns regarding environmental degradation and shifting toward renewable energy sources to reduce carbon emissions.

Green ammonia is obtained through processes that are completely renewable and carbon-free. Green ammonia is acquired through hydrogen from water electrolysis and nitrogen separated from the air. The production method includes using renewable energy to decrease the emission of greenhouse gases.

Green ammonia is in fuel cells and gas turbines. It is also being used in methane-fired power stations as an alternative fuel. Increasing initiatives to decarbonize industries such as electric vehicle charging, shipping, and non-electrified rail have increased the adoption of green ammonia. In May 2022, Science and Technology Facilities Council and Frazer-Nash Consultancy received funding from the UK government to create a design of an efficient green ammonia plant.

Engineers associated with the project are working to develop a green ammonia plant to generate ammonia through intermittent renewable energy as the source of power. The Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy supports this project through its Net Zero Innovation Portfolio Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 competition. The development is aimed at enabling the UK to become more reliant on intermittent renewable power.

The outbreak of COVID-19 influenced the global market. The market was affected by lockdown regulations across the world. Restricted trade activities, travel restrictions, and a lack of workforce were some factors that affected the market. Shutting of manufacturing activities and operational challenges were also suffered by the global industry. The market is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period owing to increasing applications, growth in environmental concerns, and supportive government regulations.
