TOKYO -- Jera, a joint fuel-procurement venture between Japan's Tokyo Electric Power and Chubu Electric Power, will begin ammonia production free of carbon dioxide emissions through a partnership with a Malaysian state-owned enterprise.

Production will follow the signing of a memorandum of understanding between Jera and Malaysian oil and gas giant Petronas. The two have agreed to use renewable energy, like hydropower, to manufacture ammonia without releasing CO2. Further details on the production site, as well as production capacity, will be determined at a later date.
