Aramco and the Institute of Energy Economics, Japan (IEEJ), in partnership with SABIC, have successfully demonstrated the production and shipment of blue ammonia from Saudi Arabia to Japan, whereas 40 tons of high-grade blue ammonia have already been dispatched to for use in zero-carbon power generation.
This accomplishment during the Covid-19 crisis affirms that the pandemic did not stop Saudi Arabia from moving towards realizing the goals of the Saudi Vision 2030 and becoming one of the major producers of renewable energy.
This notable success has attracted countries from all over the world to come to Saudi Arabia in order to take advantage of this advanced technology. Agreements have been signed.
