Air Products and Mabanaft to develop ammonia import terminal

Fine – what happens to the ammonium once it is landed? It’s converted back into hydrogen – and what then? Hydrogen is pretty hard to handle and transport. Natural Gas pipes can take some of it but it’s still very little as the hydrogen attacks the steel the pipes are made of and destroy it. So on top of another conversion step, there will be an extremely costly and difficult transport chain onwards. It could, of course, be used right in the harbor but then hydrogen use for anything thats more than a few kilometers from the harbor remains elusive. Will be fun to watch.
