Key takeaways

The Yuri Project in Australia aims to kickstart the hydrogen industry, producing the country's first green-certified ammonia as a decarbonization pathway.

The project diversifies ammonia use, targeting ship bunkering and Asian power stations, while contributing to the broader decarbonization of the ammonia industry.

Green ammonia production requires a reimagined supply chain, involving grid infrastructure and collaboration with renewable developers and infrastructure partners.
