system can be 20% complete by 2030.
How will this all come together?
move back to ammonia—without the middleman, oligarch pricing, and
producers a starting price of $100 to $300 per ton adjusted
Anhydrous Ammonia supercharges
crop yield, and at a fraction of the fertilizer cost to farmers.
Exactrix® and Proton Ventures are forming a joint marketing
agreement for small-scale ammonia plants using low-cost wind power.
The goal is to
build 10 optimized plants, and these will supply 700,000 to 1
million acres initially in typical crop rotations with legumes. In
irrigated Platte River Valley scenarios, one plant will be
dedicated to 36,000 acres or irrigated corn production. The plants
will be considered optimum scale compared to mega-sized NH3
The Anhydrous Ammonia is producer
owned the minute it is built, so the ammonia is always available.
Plants are controlled from a safe, central location.
• Small-scale ammonia plants
generally supply 1,000- 4,000 tons of nitrogen annually, and the
plants’ wind power will cost 1.2 cents to 2.2 cents per KW. This is
the least expensive power in American agriculture and North America.
• Farmers get the lowest
transportation cost to the use point. Transport of production goes on
farm by Yielder NFuel Energy.
• The NH3 futures market is
broader and more stable, not subject to Oligarch interference or
the price of NG.
• GHG is reduced greatly when
using wind power and Exactrix® application technology in
• Application safety is
improved by using DOT hazmat trucks and drivers to the delivery
point. Drivers and others are trained carefully and similar to
• The plants use high-quality
pressure vessels and the safest, most advanced technologies to
deliver the NH3. Untrained drivers are removed. Light-duty towing
pickups pulling 1,000 gallon, 40-year-old nurse trailers are
prohibited. Only the best equipment is used.
The goal is to start
building ammonia immediately with existing technology with an official
planning start date of September
2021 and production in 24-36 months at 10 locations.
In 48 months, 50
additional plants will be constructed. An anniversary date of 60
plants is set for the 2025 operating year. By 2030 to 2032, a total of
500 plants will supply Green Play Ammonia™ with 2,000,000 metric tons
of production in a price range of $100 to $300 per ton.
No doubt resourceful
farmers can help break the Oligarch hold and bring ammonia back from
$300 per ton to $100 per ton by 2030.
Farmers can ease
processes with NH3 readily available at the farm site and common and
guaranteed analysis at 82.42% N as NH3. The highest quality ammonia
will be the norm, with no problems with compressor oils and pipeline
contaminants. All-new infrastructure with the most modern of equipment
will be centrally controlled.
Now is the time to
bring on the hydrogen economy with practical NH3. Farmers can work
together to help use Anhydrous Ammonia for irrigation engines, diesel
engine dual fuel designs, and as a heat source for buildings and
dryers. Turbine generators develop DC power at the NH3 batteries.
Fuel cells have been developed that can also use NH3.
Ammonia is the low-cost
performer with great storage and handling techniques. Anhydrous
Ammonia is a dense material with a triplex hydrogen molecule. Since
NH3 has no carbon, it is not a carcinogen.
The value of the
storage tank has been doubling from the original cost at the last
auctions in Nebraska and North Dakota at $1.80 to $2.00 per gallon for
38-year-old Trinity Tanks. The 30,000 gallon storage tanks and 60,000
gallon storage tanks hold value for many years.
The NH3 pressure vessel
tanks are 1.5 to 2.2 lbs. per gallon and cost $3.50 to $3.75 per
gallon, installed $6.00 per gallon with pumps for 30,000 gallons on
the farm. Newer storage vessels in 30,000 gallon capacity weigh about
Portable storage tanks
of 22,000 gallon capacity are also available at each Green Play
Ammonia™, Yielder® NFuel Energy plant. Portable storage allows fueling
of Asphalt plants, Concrete Kilns, and remote power of NH3 turbines
and engine conversions to NH3 fueling.
How critical is it to be mobile and always available?
The failure of Mega Plants, 35 locations and controlled by the
Large 1 million to 8 million gallon storage tanks boiling at 28*F has
never made sense. A big target in times of war. Localized storage in
pressure vessels is superior, inspection is required, and easy repair.
