Air Products will build, own and operate a world-scale steam methane reformer (SMR) at Covestro's manufacturing facility in Baytown, Texas. The SMR will produce hydrogen and carbon monoxide (CO), which will be supplied to Covestro and other customers linked to Air Products' Gulf Coast Hydrogen and CO Pipeline Networks. Both product capacities from the facility to be built are already sold-out ahead of the anticipated plant onstream in 2018.
