Where will the money go?
values of Exactrix® allows Green Play Ammonia™, Yielder® NFuel Energy
to apply tested numbers, improving net producer returns per acre of
$150. This time-proven advantage is calculated with the 10-year
historical average corn price and an average 8% yield increase (4-25%
based on crop). Rotations may be changed and double cropping applied.
The first 10 Green
Play Ammonia plants cost about double of the next 500 plants. Why?
The investment in one plant includes NH3 storage and Exactrix® TAPPKTS
application machinery at $25,400,000, about $700 per acre on 36,000
acres. Proton Ventures reports the first 10 plants will cost nearly
double at $13.5 million. The windmill adds $4 million, along with $4
million for storage and handling and $4 million for application. By
2024 we expect costs to be reduced as the volume moves to 100 and on
up to 500 units per year.
The Green Play Ammonia™ anchor plants will have a setup cost of $25
million and require an additional $5 million to cover marketing
development costs, legal maneuvers and consumer incentives to ensure
ethanol, cattle feed, and corn oil are produced totally green or at
lowest GHG available.
The first 10 anchor Green Play Ammonia™ plants need $300 million to
start the ball rolling. No orphan designs are planned.
The need is for 10 identical Green Play Ammonia™ plants to provide
consistency and support from a central location. Building as many as
10,000 plants in North America locally would be a smart financial
move. The last "100 tons per day" small-scale fossil fuel plant built
by Fortigen at York, Nebraska had plant costs alone of
million. The plant was put together with a used single train
compressor and supporting components.
key point of Green Play Ammonia™, Yielder® NFuel Energy is the storage
of manufactured ammonia in much lower risk, lower cost and insurable
pressure vessels at 10,000 total locations across the US. The
requirement will be 30,000 and 60,000 gallon storage vessels of the
Every ammonia plant will be anchored on the goal of getting hydrogen
or syngas costs as low as possible. Proton Ventures states that in
their plant design using Haber Bosch electrolysis each 1 cent per KW
is equivalent to $100 per ton of ammonia. It is thus critical to drive
down wind power costs to the lowest possible levels of 1.2 cents to
1.7 cents per KW. No power will be used from the grid. The plan
includes excess NH3 to be supplied to the grid using
or MAN gas engines set up with crackers to deliver electrical power
with pure hydrogen fuel with near zero carbon emissions.
A improved design to
deliver DC energy to the truck chargers include turbine powered
generators as a total energy package at 80% to 90% efficiency. This is
anticipated to beat the cracker design due to the energy efficiency. .
When the first round of financing closes, a second 20-unit round of
Green Play Ammonia™, Yielder® NFuel Energy plants are planned for
Manning, Alberta; Peace River, Alberta; Red Deer, Alberta; Shelby,
Montana; Williston, ND; and Hettinger, ND. An expansion of two
additional plants will be made on the existing plant marketing areas.
Plants in Kansas and Oklahoma will eventually be added. The plants in
Texas (at least 40 are needed) will be located at the Texas/Oklahoma
border, allowing producers in Kansas to access low-cost ammonia. South
Dakota and Nebraska will be expansionary areas. The third round of
plants will cascade from the load-sharing features of multiple plants.
