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.
Hydrogen for Mobility: Generating a Cleaner Future
Air Products’ higher purpose includes addressing the world’s need for clean energy and materials while reducing environmental impacts. Hydrogen is key to rising to these challenges, and our H2fM Hydrogen for Mobility solutions cover the entire value chain for hydrogen fueling.
Generating a cleaner future involves experience, investment and innovation on a world scale. We have the technology, the track record, the capital and the ambition to be a first-mover in bringing the hydrogen economy to scale.
Landmark U.S. $4.5 Billion Louisiana Blue Hydrogen Clean Energy Complex
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.
World's Largest Carbon-free Hydrogen Project
An equal production joint venture of ACWA Power, Air Products and NEOM incorporated in August 2021, the NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) is establishing the world’s largest green-hydrogen-based ammonia production facility run on renewable energy. This mega-plant will produce up to 600 tons per day of carbon-free hydrogen in the form of green-ammonia as a cost-effective solution for transportation globally.
Air Products is the primary EPC contractor and will be the exclusive off-taker of the green ammonia and intends to transport it around the world to be dissociated to produce green hydrogen for the transportation market.
Landmark New Net-zero Hydrogen Energy Complex in Canada
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.
Saudi Arabia's First Hydrogen Fueling Station
Saudi Aramco and Air Products have jointly built the first hydrogen fueling station in Saudi Arabia, marking the first step in developing oil-based hydrogen transport within the Kingdom. The fueling station combines Saudi Aramco's industrial and technological experience with our hydrogen fueling know-how and experience.
Located at Air Products' Technology Center in the Dhahran Techno Valley Science Park, the new station incorporates our proprietary H2fM® hydrogen fueling technology to supply an initial fleet of six Toyota Mirai fuel cell electric vehicles with high-purity compressed hydrogen. The data collected during the pilot phase of this project will provide valuable information for the assessment of future applications of this emerging and diverse transport technology in the local environment.
