The Project

Ultra-Low carbon Fuel Production

8 Rivers is developing Cormorant Clean Energy, an ultra-low-carbon ammonia production facility located on the Gulf Coast of the United States.  Coupling innovation with industry-proven process equipment, Cormorant Clean Energy will be the first commercial-scale deployment of 8 Rivers’ proprietary 8RH2 technology.




By harnessing pure oxygen and pressurized CO2 , 8RH2 revolutionizes the conversion of natural gas into high-purity hydrogen or ammonia, nearly eliminating all carbon emissions while dramatically lowering production costs.

Ultra-Low Carbon Fuels

Powered by 8RH2, Cormorant Clean Energy will produce ultra low-carbon ammonia for use in transportation, industrial processes, agriculture and more with best-in-class efficiency and carbon capture.

Investment and Jobs

Cormorant Clean Energy is expected to bring in over $1 billion in investments and create more than 1,000 new construction jobs from 2024 to 2027.

Power Without Pollution

Cormorant Clean Energy will produce an estimated 880,000 tonnes of ammonia and capture 1,400,000+ Tonnes of CO2 annually, with a >99% CO2 capture rate.

Unlocking Ultra-low carbon H2

Companies in hard-to-abate industries like shipping, heavy transportation, aviation, and power generation are seeking low-carbon alternatives to fossil fuels for their ships, vehicles, power plants, and industrial facilities. Two of those key alternatives are hydrogen and hydrogen-derived ammonia, which do not release COwhen burned, offering companies a truly clean fuel alternative.

However, most conventional low-carbon hydrogen production methods are inefficient, expensive, or carbon-intensive. Traditional steam methane reforming and autothermal reforming hydrogen production processes either still contribute to significant CO2 emissions, require the use of expensive hardware, or can even use toxic chemicals. This has made it difficult – environmentally and economically – for producers to justify upgrading their assets to produce low-carbon hydrogen.

Cormorant Clean Energy will be located on the U.S. Gulf Coast, strategically leveraging existing infrastructure, a skilled workforce, and a commitment to the energy transition.
