In recognition of Earth Day yesterday, Air Products has said it is working to solve the world’s urgent energy and environmental needs through large-scale gasification, carbon capture, and hydrogen for mobility and energy transition.

In the past year, the US company has developed multiple projects to help meet global customers’ energy and productivity needs, including opening the US’s largest fast-fill hydrogen bus fuelling station and capturing almost one million tonnes for CO2 for use in Texas.

“Absolutely nothing is more important at this time that solving the current COVID-19 crisis, which is the greatest global challenge we all face today,” said Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman, President and CEO at Air Products.

“At the same time, we must continue to address very important sustainability issues which will not go away. We will always need to protect our environment, part of that is meeting the world’s need for clean sustainable energy, and we see ourselves at the heart of that issue.”

“We look forward to continuing to work with our employees, customers and partners to innovate and collectively build a better future.”

“Every year, Air Products develops and deploys technology for the world to meet energy and productivity needs,” said Simon Moore, Vice-President of Investor Relations, Corporate Relations and Sustainability.

“This includes work with businesses from energy to electronics, metals to manufacturing, and chemicals to construction – our gas products and technologies enable economic opportunities and foster healthy communities around the world.”
