Air Liquide has inaugurated Cryocap™, a unique industrial installation that enables the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) released during hydrogen production via a cryogenic process.
Connected to Air Liquide’s largest hydrogen production unit in France, located in Port-Jérôme, Notre-Dame-de-Gravenchon (Normandy), Cryocap™ represents an investment of around €30m decided by the group in 2012
The project received an additional public financial support of close to €9m.
Developed jointly by Air Liquide R&D and Engineering & Construction teams, Cryocap™ is being rolled out for the first time in Port-Jérôme, on the SMR (Steam Methane Reformer) of Air Liquide, which produces hydrogen for the neighbouring refinery, Esso Raffinage SAF (ExxonMobil group).
