Waterstofproductieprojecten op wereldschaal
Air Products’ higher purpose includes addressing the world’s need for clean energy and materials while reducing environmental impacts. Hydrogen is key to meeting this challenge.
Generating a cleaner future involves experience, investment, and innovation on a world scale. We have over 60 years’ experience safely producing and delivering hydrogen to our customers and more than 50 patents in hydrogen fueling. We have announced billions of dollars of investment in new sources of hydrogen and infrastructure development. Air Products has the technology, the track record, and the ambition to bring the hydrogen economy to scale.
Transit agencies around the world are transitioning to zero-emission fuel cell electric buses, and Air Products is providing hydrogen fueling solutions to support their goals.
Hydrogen is already playing a key role in decarbonizing transportation, and provides superior performance compared to other clean technologies when deployed in heavy-duty applications. Air Products isn’t just saying this but is leading by example through its recent announcement to convert its global fleet of approximately 2,000 trucks to hydrogen fuel cell zero-emission vehicles.
As the world’s largest hydrogen producer and operator of the world's longest hydrogen pipeline system, Air Products works across all facets of the hydrogen value chain, including production, distribution, storage, and dispensing of gaseous and liquid hydrogen.
Air Products will invest $4.5B to build-own-operate the world’s largest blue hydrogen production facility, producing over 750 MMSCFD of blue hydrogen in Louisiana, USA. A portion of the blue hydrogen will be compressed and supplied to customers by our U.S. Gulf Coast pipeline network; the balance will be used to make blue ammonia that will be transported around the world and converted back to blue hydrogen for transportation and other markets.
The megaproject will also capture over five million metric tons per year of CO₂, making it the largest carbon capture for sequestration facility in the world. Numerous studies have shown that Louisiana’s geology is some of the best in the world for permanent geologic sequestration.
The project is expected to be operational in 2026.
Ons waterstofenergiecomplex in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada zal het gebied het centrum maken van de waterstofeconomie van West-Canada en de Pacific Northwest. Het complex zal voldoende vloeibare waterstof produceren om alle OV-bedrijven in Alberta van brandstof te voorzien. Beter nog, de combinatie van onze geavanceerde waterstoftechnologie, CO2-afvangst en -opslag en waterstofgeneratie maakt het mogelijk om de installatie te exploiteren met een CO2-uitstoot van nul.
