Global Hydrogen Review,

KBR has been awarded a licence and engineering design contract by Hanwha Impact Corp. for the world's first commercial ammonia cracking unit using KBR's leading H2ACTSM technology in Daesan, Republic of Korea.

In this largest capacity ammonia cracking plant announced to date, clean hydrogen will serve a planned power plant in Daesan, paving the way for large-scale sustainable hydrogen utilisation. Ammonia cracking, the process to convert transported ammonia back to hydrogen, is a key enabler to achieving the world's decarbonisation target.

Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide technology licensing and proprietary engineering design for the unit, which will be designed to deliver over 200 tpd of clean hydrogen as fuel.

"We are honored to be selected by Hanwha for this flagship project, which will accelerate the realisation of their decarbonisation targets and play a vital role in Korea's national sustainability objectives," said Doug Kelly, President, Technology, KBR. "KBR's breakthrough ammonia cracking technology, H2ACT, delivers a reliable and holistic solution for large-scale, efficient, and sustainable hydrogen production."
