Air Products (NYSE: APD) develops solutions to help meet the
world’s energy and productivity needs. Our
products help improve the environment and improve our customer’s production
processes. We provide essential
industrial gases, related equipment and applications expertise to customers in
dozens of industries, including refining, chemical, metals, electronics,
manufacturing, and food and beverage. We
are also the global leader in the supply of liquefied natural gas process
technology and equipment.
Air Products provides industrial gas in bulk liquid and
compressed gas forms as well as via “on-site” dedicated facilities. We began more than seven decades ago by
pioneering the on-site business model to supply oxygen to the steel industry.
Four decades later, we extended the on-site model to provide hydrogen to the
oil refining industry. Recently, we again
extended the on-site model to gasification to produce syngas. Air Products has
successfully executed several large gasification projects around the world and
is now the world’s premier gasification company possessing propriety
technologies and unmatched capabilities.
Looking into the future, Air Products sees significant
opportunities in gasification, carbon capture and hydrogen for energy to help
solve the world’s urgent sustainability challenges. Gasification enables an environmentally
friendly way to use plentiful, lower value feedstocks. We see significant opportunities to capture the
concentrated CO2 stream from gasifiers and hydrogen plants. Air Products is a leader in hydrogen fueling
systems and infrastructure, and the company sees great potential in the years
ahead to extend its leadership.
Air Products has fiscal 2019 sales of $8.9 billion and market
capitalization of about $50 billion. It employs more than 17,000 people and
operates over 750 facilities in 50 countries supplying to more than 30
