Air Products to build world-scale hydrogen plant


Air Products has announced the signing of a long-term supply contract with Monsanto Company, to build a new world-scale hydrogen production plant at Monsanto’s Luling, Louisiana Roundup® facility.

The SMR will be connected to Air Products’ East Gulf Coast pipeline network, which supplies refineries with hydrogen needed to make cleaner burning transportation fuels, in addition to meeting the hydrogen needs of the local petrochemical industry.
