06.11.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

June 11, 2024 [Storage Terminals Magazine]- Svein Tore Holsether, president & CEO at Yara International, announced a significant milestone in the journey towards decarbonisation with the official opening of Yara International’s renewable hydrogen plant at Heroya, Norway. This plant is currently the largest of its kind in operation in Europe.


Additionally, Yara International has successfully delivered the first tonnes of low-carbon footprint fertilisers to Lantmannen. This partnership exemplifies the necessity of collaboration across the entire food value chain to achieve decarbonisation.

Holsether acknowledged the challenges faced during the process but expressed pride in the company’s achievements. He emphasised that the insights gained will be instrumental in continuing efforts to reduce emissions from fertilisers, shipping, and other energy-intensive industries.

While Yara International stands as a leader in the green transition, Holsether noted that the scale of this transition requires collective efforts beyond a single company. Achieving success in this green shift will necessitate investments, predictable framework conditions, funding, affordable renewable energy, and a balanced development of market demand and supply. Collaboration across entire value chains is crucial to deliver on the Paris Agreement.

Holsether expressed gratitude to the partners and customers who have joined Yara International as first movers towards a more sustainable future. This shared vision marks a significant step in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors.

Holsether also highlighted the critical role of Yara’s employees in the project’s success. Their dedication was pivotal in getting the cutting-edge production up and running. He expressed excitement for the future achievements as Yara continues its strategy of profitable decarbonisation.
