Air Liquide Philippines has signed a long-term contract for a supply of hydrogen to Shell’s Tabango refinery in Batangas, Philippines.
The contract with Pilipinas Shell will see Air Liquide invest €30m in the construction of a state-of-the-art hydrogen manufacturing unit (HMU) that will be built on the Tabangao refinery in Batangas.
The HMU, owned and operated by Air Liquide, will be fitted with a carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery unit that mitigates direct carbon emission levels by capturing and liquifying the CO2 for other uses.
“This gas supply contract reflects the long-term partnership and the mutual trust between Air Liquide and Shell,” said Francois Abrial, member of the Air Liquide Group’s Executive Committee supervising Asia Pacific.
“We are confident in our ability to create value for our key customers in the Philippines and deliver superior performance that considers both business interests and environmental sustainability.”
