ADNOC said the first agreement, with the Kawasaki company, aims to explore the production, liquefaction, and transportation of hydrogen to key global markets, while the second, with the Japan Organisation for Metals and Energy Security, Mitsui, Inpex, and the Clean Fuel Ammonia Association, aims to confirm clean certification for ADNOC’s low-carbon ammonia projects.

The company pointed out that, as both hydrogen and ammonia emit no carbon dioxide, they will play a key role in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors.

At the beginning of 2023, ADNOC and UAE strengthened ties with several Japanese companies. Inpex officially committed to the UAE in regard to clean energy development in the country, and ADNOC’s Abu Dhabi Chemicals Derivatives Company (TA’ZIZ) signed an agreement with Mitsui & Co to develop a low-carbon ammonia production facility at the TA’ZIZ Industrial Chemicals Zone in Abu Dhabi.

To remind, ADNOC and UAE have been working on clean fuels value chain linking the UAE and Japan for some time. In 2022, ADNOC teamed up with several Japanese companies in regard to hydrogen and ammonia.
