We’re working with environmentally-conscious brands to reduce CO2 emissions and develop innovative energy solutions.

Greener fertilizer. Cleaner fuels. Fuel ammonia. These are just a few of the unique developments Denbury and its partners are bringing to life through Denbury Carbon Solutions Partnership Projects. Companies like Mitsubishi, Nutrien and Infinium are partnering with Denbury to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate new product development. Our Partnership Projects include industrial CO2 capture, CO2 storage and transport, and COrecycling. Together, we can create a more sustainable future. Contact our Carbon Solutions Team to discuss how we can assist with your carbon management needs.

Greener Fertilizer

Fertilizer companies seeking greener solutions may reduce their impact on climate change by capturing and storing or recycling the CO2 emissions they produce in the creation of products like nitrogen or ammonia. Since 2013, Denbury has partnered with Nutrien to transport CO2 captured from their nitrogen facilities, which are located in close proximity to Denbury’s CO2 pipeline. In 2022, the two companies reached an agreement for Denbury to store and transport CO2 captured from a potential new clean ammonia project planned by Nutrien.

Clean Fuels

Innovative clean fuel manufacturers are using industrially-sourced CO2 in the production of low-carbon fuels, such as Infinium’s Electrofuel. Denbury can provide industrial CO2 to fuel producers through its extensive CO2 pipeline, which is also used to capture and transport CO2 from emitters. Denbury currently has an agreement to source and transport CO2 to Infinium’s facilities, which are planned to be sited near Denbury’s existing pipeline infrastructure. Infinium’s facilities are anticipated to utilize 1.5 million tons of CO2 per year that would otherwise be emitted into the atmosphere.

Blue ammonia facility.

Blue Ammonia

Industrial manufacturers are looking for ways to combat climate change by using ammonia as a carbon-free fuel. Ammonia can be produced from renewable hydrogen and nitrogen separated from air, and its thermal properties make it attractive as a hydrogen and energy carrier. Mitsubishi is planning construction of a fuel ammonia facility in the Gulf Coast, near Denbury’s CO2 pipelines. The project is targeted to produce an ammonia volume of around 1 million metric tons per annum (“MMTPA”), with associated CO2 emissions of around 1.8 MMPTA. Denbury has entered into an agreement with Mitsubishi, to transport and store all of the CO2 captured at Mitsubishi’s ammonia facilities. The captured CO2 may be utilized by Denbury in its enhanced oil recovery operations or, alternatively, for storage in other geologic sequestrations sites.
