Air Products has taken a leadership position in the development of hydrogen technologies that provide reliable and resilient power and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
We deployed our first hydrogen fueling station in 1993 and have developed an extensive patent portfolio related to hydrogen supply and dispensing technology based on performing millions of safe fills. Significant advances have been—and continue to be—made in the use of hydrogen both as a transportation fuel and a fuel for power generation. With more than 60 years of hydrogen experience, Air Products is on the forefront of hydrogen energy technology development.
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.
