The Feasibility of Renewable Green Hydrogen project will conduct and assess the feasibility of producing renewable green hydrogen and ammonia at Dyno Nobel’s existing facility in Moranbah, Queensland.
The Feasibility of Renewable Green Hydrogen project led by Dyno Nobel aims to simultaneously increase production while reducing C02 emissions.
Dyno Nobel hopes to achieve this by investigating options to substitute renewable hydrogen for natural gas as feedstock to the ammonia manufacturing process.
Report: Dyno Nobel Renewable Hydrogen Feasibility Study
This report presents the outcomes of an engineering and economic feasibility study to evaluate the construction of a renewable hydrogen facility for production of feedstock for the Dyno Nobel Moranbah ammonium nitrate production facility in Moranbah, Queensland.
The Feasibility of Renewable Green Hydrogen study will be carried out to determine the scope and cost of the required plant upgrade using methane and renewable hydrogen as alternative feedstocks. The study has determined that the following elements are vital for the study. The elements include:
- system design parameters
- design and technology selection
- process safety
- production performance
- approvals and permitting
- innovations in design
- cost drivers
- implementation timeframe
- funding requirements
The Feasibility of Renewable Green Hydrogen study will evaluate if a feasible project can be developed with hydrogen produced from zero-emission electrolysis and supplied at a price that is cost competitive to alternatives. The study will determine the cost of hydrogen electrolysis equipment at industrial scale (>100 MW) and the strategy to manage electrical and hydrogen supply variability. The study will determine the economics of solar-only, behind-the-meter power generation for renewable hydrogen production.
The knowledge shared from the study will advance understanding of the commercialisation of renewable hydrogen production for domestic and international use. If feasible, future phases of the project may create significant employment and form the basis of a hydrogen manufacturing hub in Queensland.
Hydrogen offers a way to produce a renewable, emissions-free fuel using the power of the sun and wind.
Dyno Nobel will assess the feasibility of creating the world’s largest renewable ammonia plant at their Moranbah facility in the heart of the coal-rich Bowen Basin.
