Argus Clean Ammonia North America Conference 2024 Hyatt Regency Houston/Galleria, Houston

Gain the latest insights you need to know about how North America is positioning itself as a leader in clean ammonia production in the critical energy hub of Houston, Texas.

The Inflation Reduction Act announced in 2022 transformed the project landscape for global clean ammonia production, this conference will provide critical updates on its progress and how it continues to drive both supply and demand for hydrogen and ammonia in the United States (US). Hear from senior industry leaders from across key US states such as Texas and Louisiana, as well as from Canada, Europe, Japan and the rest of the world.

Over the three days of the conference, explore the big questions many producers are facing around where demand is coming from, expect to hear perspectives from key domestic consumers as well as international demand centres for clean ammonia. Further topics for discussion will include midstream infrastructure development in North America, the role of Independent Power Producers and Local Distribution Companies, certification and its role in making clean ammonia a fungible commodity and so much more…

Participants will also have an opportunity to participate in the Carbon and CCS workshop on day one of the conference, available as an add-on, to gain insight into blue ammonia production projects, carbon storage challenges, CCS technology developments, plus exclusive an exclusive networking breakfast.
