Air Products breaks ground at Huntsman site in Louisiana for industrial gases production plant


Air Products jointly gathered with Huntsman for a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of what will be the Tier One company’s new steam methane reformer (SMR) and cold box in Louisiana.

Under a long-term agreement, Air Products will build, own and operate the facility, producing and supplying industrial gases including carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen (H2) and steam to Huntsman’s neighbouring Geismar operations.
