Praxair has begun supplying hydrogen (H2) to Marathon Petroleum Corporation’s refinery in Garyville, Louisiana.
Marathon Petroleum is one of the largest transportation fuels refiners in the US and operates an integrated refining, marketing and transportation system in the Midwest, East, Southeast and Gulf Coast.
