Kemmerer decarbonization works

Carbon-neutral ammonia from coal.


Kemmerer Decarbonization Works (“KDW”) plans to supply Net-Zero ammonia to serve agriculture and energy needs for a sustainable future.

The KDW facility is planned to be constructed at the site of the Kemmerer Mine, located in Kemmerer, Wyoming, and would repurpose feedstock of the existing Naughton generating station.

Kemmerer Decarbonization Works plans to combine four zero emission processes in its coal gasification, ammonia production and electricity generation facilities connected to existing or new carbon transportation and sequestration infrastructure. KDW would capture and sequester all potential carbon emissions from its production processes in rock formations deep underground.

Kemmerer Decarbonization Works aims to support the local community and State by preserving or creating hundreds of well-paying jobs while providing for a sustainable, ongoing market for Wyoming resources.


Ammonia is critically important to modern society. For example, over 80% of global ammonia production is used to produce agricultural fertilizer that is necessary to feed the world's population. In addition, demand for ammonia as a carbon-free fuel is projected to increase dramatically.

Kemmerer Decarbonization Works, in its plan to produce Net-Zero ammonia by capturing and sequestering all potential carbon emissions from the production processes, would avoid the release of significant amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere under conventional processes.

By producing Net-Zero ammonia in Wyoming, Kemmerer Decarbonization Works expects to contribute to both energy security and global food security. KDW would make Wyoming an important new supplier. Today, the U.S. is the world’s #1 ammonia importer, while China and Russia are the world’s #1 and #2 ammonia-producing countries.

In addition to fertilizer, ammonia can be used as carbon-free fuel for electricity generation by supplying existing thermal generation units retrofitted for ammonia combustion. As ammonia has a similar energy density to coal, but does not emit CO2 when burned, many existing generation stations are candidates for retrofits for ammonia combustion. This potential is already being advanced globally and is contributing to increasing ammonia demand.

In serving existing and new markets, Kemmerer Decarbonization Works plans to convert Kemmerer Mine production into a valuable, carbon-free product that can be readily transported to customers via existing infrastructure, including pipelines, rail, trucks and tanker ships.

Key Benefits

Kemmerer Decarbonization Works expects to provide several benefits to stakeholders:
Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
Sustainable, ongoing market for Wyoming energy
Utilization of existing infrastructure & resources
Well-paying employment and other economic and community benefits

Favorable Economics

Kemmerer Decarbonization Works plans to supply Net-Zero ammonia that is projected to be cost-competitive with conventional, carbon-emitting sources.

CO2 Sequestration

Kemmerer Decarbonization Works intends to sequester carbon dioxide in rock formations deep underground. Wyoming offers several advantages for this secure geologic storage as a result of the State’s geology, wealth of sub-surface data available, existing infrastructure, and a supportive regulatory environment.

About the Sponsors

Glenrock Energy, LLC is a Casper, Wyoming-based carbon-management company that is developing carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration ("CCUS") and related energy transition projects and also owns and operates mineral properties in the Powder River Basin that are suitable for the secure geological storage of captured carbon dioxide.

Kanata Clean Power and Climate Technologies Corp. is an Alberta based, Indigenous co-founded, decarbonization asset management, intellectual property and development platform in the business of developing Net-Zero infrastructure in North America using leading-edge CCUS technologies.
Current Kemmerer Decarbonization Works Status - Over the past year, the sponsors have engaged extensively with stakeholders and garnered significant support for the KDW project.
