Air Products has hit a milestone with its membrane-based nitrogen generation systems, having supplied 2,000 seagoing vessels with the technology.
The industrial gas giant is believed to be the first company to install a membrane-based nitrogen generation system onboard a ship in 1984. And today, ships in over 50 countries are utilising Air Products’ membrane-based nitrogen generation systems.
Air Products Membrane Solutions’ membrane-based nitrogen generation systems enable large ships to efficiently switch from traditional heavy fuels to cleaner alternative fuels while at sea, resulting in reduced emissions during the transport of goods.
Dr. Erin Sorensen, General Manager of Air Products Membrane Solutions, said, “Almost four decades after pioneering this technology, Air Products continues to innovate and support the energy transition by providing membrane systems to alternative fuel ships, enabling a cleaner future.”
