How our green ammonia system works

Modular, Containerized, Autonomous

Talus Renewables, an energy technology company, has pioneered the first commercial, modular, zero-carbon green ammonia system that makes the production and distribution of a critical raw material cheaper, cleaner, and more reliable.

Talus locally produces lower-cost, carbon-free ammonia at or near the point of use, creating value for agriculture, mining, and maritime shipping, with applications in renewable energy storage and power generation.
Why green ammonia?

Green ammonia is a global de-carbonizer

Ammonia is a critical raw material used in fertilizers and other industrial applications. Grey ammonia contributes 2% of global carbon emissions and depends on an unreliable and costly supply chain. Talus supports a cheaper, cleaner alternative: Green Ammonia.

Why Talus?

Why We Win the Clean Ammonia Race

Remove the middleman from the process with our green ammonia production capabilities. Our on-site green ammonia systems remove the costly, and unreliable supply chain from the equation. We improve access to a critical raw material by:
Providing a clean ammonia alternative for agricultural or industrial use
Supporting sustainable farming
Tackling global food insecurity issues
We eliminate a long, costly, and unreliable supply chain
