Aramco and S-Oil cooperate for Import of Low-Carbon Ammonia

1. February 2024

S-Oil is collaborating with Aramco in a project to import eco-friendlier ammonia from Saudi Arabia to Korea. This ammonia, produced with lower CO2 emissions, is crucial for environmental sustainability. Aramco will manufacture this ammonia utilizing carbon capture technology, while S-Oil plans to convert it into hydrogen for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and further business ventures. Pressure vessels and similar products used in the production of such gases generally require KGS Registration in order to be approved for import and trade in Korea.

According to a statement by S-Oil, the Letter of Intent (LOI) between the two firms lays the groundwork for S-Oil’s commitment to fostering low-carbon ammonia infrastructure and market development in Korea.

Low-carbon ammonia is primarily used in fertilizer production but is also a fundamental component in various basic chemicals and can serve as a fuel source. It is a variant of ammonia generated with reduced carbon dioxide emissions during production, which is key to ecological conservation due to the high energy consumption of traditional methods.

Feel free to contact us any time if you need assistance or have any questions regarding Korean certifications like KC, KC EMC, KCs, KCs for explosion safety products or KGS factory registration.
