The Louisiana Clean Energy Complex will produce low-carbon hydrogen to power mobility and industrial markets in the Gulf Coast region and beyond. The facility will capture and sequester 95% of its carbon dioxide emissions (over 5 million tons per year), permanently sequestering the CO2 in ideal geological pore space in Louisiana.
At a cost of $4.5 billion, this project is the largest U.S. investment by Air Products and a major investment in the State of Louisiana. This clean energy complex will enhance the local economy, use proven technology to significantly reduce emissions through carbon capture for permanent sequestration, and help customers improve their own sustainability performance.
Gov. John Bel Edwards has announced Louisiana intends to reduce GHG emissions to net-zero by 2050 while consecutively preserving the state’s economic competitiveness. This project helps move toward achieving both of those goals.
