With global shipping accounting for 706 million tonnes of CO2 emissions last year*, we must cooperate across value chains to reach the 1.5°C goal by 2030. Yara International is a founding member of the First Movers Coalition and supports the Green Shipping Challenge. Yara International and Yara Clean Ammonia promote low-carbon solutions across hard-to-abate sectors and clean ammonia as fuel in new and retrofitted zero-emission vessels.
Yara Eyde is optimized for the trade corridor between Norway and Germany and will operate between Oslo, Porsgrunn, Hamburg, and Bremerhaven. From 2026, Norwegian companies can trade their products emissions-free in and out of Norway. Yara International is participating as a cargo-owner. The fertilizer produced in Porsgrunn will be shipped emission-free to Germany, cutting scope 3 emissions with 11,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Clean ammonia is predicted to reduce shipping emissions by about 3%, allowing for more ecologically friendly global shipping of goods.
According to Magnus Krogh Ankarstrand, President of Yara Clean Ammonia, Yara Eyde is a big step toward Yara’s emission-free supply chains. This project showcases clean ammonia’s ability as a marine fuel and shows how economical and eco-friendly it is for maritime transportation.
Yara Clean Ammonia hopes to promote the hydrogen economy by leveraging the market’s predicted significant expansion in the upcoming decades.
