Sustainable Industries

Transforming industries with green hydrogen and green ammonia to contribute to a more sustainable future.

We lead the transformation of industries towards a more sustainable future, thanks to green hydrogen

We supply sustainable materials to contribute to a greener future with MAE

As we move towards a more sustainable world, with our Volta project, we will provide a reliable, clean and competitive resource for local and global industries.

Our skills, combined with a strategic location in the future epicenter of green hydrogen and green ammonia production, position us as pioneering market leaders, capable of supplying these resources on a commercial scale around the world.

Considering the current market energy prices, including natural gas and other fuels, our green hydrogen and green ammonia production has the potential to maintain competitive and predictable prices in the long term.

Our strategy aims at supplying the growing green ammonia market in its different uses and applications.

Uses of green hydrogen and green ammonia to transform industries

Uses of green hydrogen and green ammonia are diverse, and promise to generate a significant impact in multiple sectors, such as the agricultural, shipping, chemicals products and power generation industries.

These different uses, as indicated by the Chilean National Green Hydrogen Strategy, will be gradually deployed in the next years. While this process develops, at MAE we will be ready to produce clean and sustainable green hydrogen and green ammonia for Chile and the world.

Green fertilizers: Promoting sustainability in agriculture

New generation of fertilizers using green ammonia

Fertilizers have been a fundamental tool to improve crop performance and nutrition, contributing to meet the growing global demand for food. However, one of the most urgent challenges of modern agriculture is to decarbonize its processes.

34% of the chemical industry's emissions come from the production of grey ammonia used in agriculture. Reducing these figures by using green ammonia will have a positive impact on the environment.

At MAE, we are committed to providing green ammonia for farmers in order to produce environmentally friendly fertilizers and paving the way to a cleaner agricultural future.

Navigating towards a sustainable future connected to a global economy

Clean fuel: critical for a connected and sustainable global economy

Maritime transport plays a key role in the global economy, being responsible for the transportation of approximately 90% of goods. This sector, vital for global connectivity, faces increasing pressure to reduce its carbon footprint and meet the sustainability goals.

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2050, compared to 2008, and the decarbonization goal is expected to be even more ambitious.

At MAE, we are convinced that green ammonia represents a sustainable and profitable fuel option for maritime transport. Green ammonia has advantages in terms of overall production capacity, cost reduction, distribution, storage, volumetric and weight density, and efficiency.

Carbon-free energy is the key to maintaining a sustainable electricity supply

A carbon-free alternative to keep the lights on

In the search for a cleaner and more sustainable future, the energy industry faces the great challenge of achieving decarbonization as soon as possible. At a global level, this industry is responsible for the emission of around 13.5 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide per year.

The need to radically reduce these emissions is clear. And this is where green ammonia appears as a great solution. In particular, for those countries with a limited or null capacity to produce renewable energy. Green ammonia imports are the best alternative to achieve a more sustainable electrical mix and reduce the carbon footprint of energy generation.

Examples such as Japan and Korea stand out. Both countries have outlined aggressive green ammonia import plans as an essential part of their transition to a cleaner energy generation.
