DNV certifies Ma’aden as ultra low carbon ammonia producer

Saudi Arabian Mining Company (Ma’aden), renowned as the Middle East’s largest multi-commodity firm, has set a new global benchmark by being certified as the world’s largest producer of ultra low carbon ammonia. The international assessor DNV verified Ma’aden’s production of 614,000 tonnes of this environmentally friendly ammonia, marking a significant milestone in the company’s efforts to evolve into an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) exemplar within Saudi Arabia. The certification served as a testament to the company’s commitment to reducing the carbon footprint in the fertilizer industry and supporting sustainable practices in global food production.

With its fertilizer business already established as the second-largest phosphate fertilizer exporter globally, Ma’aden is well-positioned to solidify its status as a leading producer of ultra low carbon ammonia. The company has also exported over 138 kilotons of blue ammonia to key international markets, including the European Union and China.

Robert Wilt, CEO of Ma’aden, emphasized the company’s pivotal role in the global energy transition, “We are now at the forefront of supplying the world with a lower carbon fuel source that has the potential to support the global energy transition. It’s great to see our plans for growth and transformation not only being realized and putting Ma’aden on a sustainable path for the future, but also having the potential to help drive Saudi Arabia’s green ambitions.”
