Sustainability in Action

Air Products publishes 2022 Sustainability Report.

North America’s Largest Sustainable Aviation Fuel Production Facility

Air Products is teaming up with World Energy to build a new $2 billion major expansion project at World Energy’s Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) production and distribution hub in Paramount, California. The site’s total fuel capacity will be expanded to 340 million gallons annually, making it North America’s largest and the world’s most advanced SAF production facility.

The project includes a new hydrogen plant to be built, owned and operated by Air Products and renewable fuels manufacturing facilities to be operated by World Energy, as well as an extension and capacity increase of Air Products’ existing hydrogen pipeline network in Southern California. Continuing Air Products’ leadership in driving the energy transition, this U.S. megaproject will provide measurable sustainability benefits and advance California’s decarbonization goals by producing a renewable fuel to meet the growing demands of the aviation industry.

Landmark U.S. $4.5 Billion Louisiana Blue Hydrogen Clean Energy Complex

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. 

Landmark New Net-zero Hydrogen Energy Complex in Canada

Air Products and its subsidiary Air Products Canada Ltd., in conjunction with the Government of Canada and the Province of Alberta, are planning to build a landmark new net-zero hydrogen energy complex.

The project will begin with a transformative $1.3 billion (CAD) net-zero hydrogen production and liquefaction facility expected onstream in 2024. Air Products will deploy advanced hydrogen technology and innovative design to deliver net-zero emissions. The new facility will capture over 95 percent of the carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the feedstock natural gas and store it safely back underground. Hydrogen-fueled electricity will offset the remaining five percent of emissions.

The clean energy complex will help refining and petrochemical customers served by the Air Products Heartland Hydrogen Pipeline to reduce their carbon intensity. The complex also marks a first in the wider use of hydrogen in Alberta, enabling the production of liquid hydrogen to be an emissions-free fuel in the transportation sector, and to generate clean electricity. This is expected to have a positive impact in lowering Alberta’s carbon emissions.
