The roadmap for reducing the carbon intensity of ammonia exists; however, at-scale economics require the emergence of low-carbon end markets for ammonia or hydrogen use as a fuel.

Our 2030 Commitment

Invest in new technologies and pursue the transition to low-carbon fertilizers, including blue and green ammonia.

IMPACT
ShowHide

Access to early-stage technology ecosystems will help identify low-carbon ammonia innovations, which is anticipated to provide long-term reductions in emissions when deployed at scale. Future commercial scale-up is expected to drive absolute emissions reductions post-2030.

HOW WE’RE DOING IT
ShowHide

Our near-term focus is on economically maximizing carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) using existing infrastructure, and supporting the growth of Nutrien’s leading blue/low-carbon ammonia production. We will focus on market development for industrial applications and will continue to actively pursue opportunities to position Nutrien’s blue/low-carbon ammonia for use in proof-of-concept trials. We are also advancing a certification effort to create a universally recognized standard for low-carbon ammonia products to support pricing, market transparency and confidence around emissions claims.

Concurrently, Nutrien will assess the scope and investments required for transformational low-carbon ammonia production pathways, including exploring technology partnerships, investing in internal research and pursuing scalable pilot projects to enable commercial-scale production in the future.
