Japan’s Top Power Producer Seeks Long-Term Clean Ammonia Deal

  • Jera to conduct competitive bid for ammonia supply from 2027
  • Aims to curb emissions by co-firing coal plant with ammonia

Japan’s top power producer will start one of the largest global auctions to buy ammonia, as it bets on the clean-burning fuel to curb emissions and hit its green goals. 

Jera Co. aims to sign a long-term contract to purchase the ammonia starting from 2027, which the utility will use to replace some of the coal at one of its power plants, according to a statement on Friday. The power producer will seek bids where carbon emissions are not generated in the ammonia production, or are captured and stored in the process.
