On its social media, SABIC said the shipment reflects its commitment to delivering low-carbon solutions to its customers and helping them achieve their net-zero targets in various areas, including clean energy transitions and low-carbon chemicals and fertilizer solutions.

In April this year, Aramco announced that a shipment of low-carbon ammonia has arrived in Japan for use as fuel in power generation. More specifically, it was transported to the Fuji Oil company’s Sodegaura Refinery for use in co-fired power generation.

The shipment is the result of a multiparty collaboration across the low-carbon ammonia value chain, with the ammonia produced by SABIC Agri-Nutrients.

At the time, Aramco said the low-carbon ammonia that reached Japan is part of broader efforts by Aramco and SABIC to establish a global supply network for the fuel, adding that the two companies aim to supply low-carbon ammonia to other players to meet their early demand needs.
