A view of Monolith's soon-to-open facility in Nebraska

Monolith Materials plans to build a plant in Hallam, Nebraska, that produces ammonia without generating carbon dioxide. Monolith is in the process of commissioning a plant that uses pyrolysis to turn methane into hydrogen and 14,000 metric tons (t) per year of carbon black. Its next step is to build a 180,000 t carbon black facility along with a companion facility that makes NH3 by reacting the hydrogen with nitrogen in the Haber-Bosch process. The new plant will run on 100% renewable electricity, Monolith says.
