Air Products to construct coal-to-syngas plant in Hohhot, China


Air Products has been awarded a long-term onsite contract to supply syngas to Jiutai New Material Co. Ltd for their multi-billion-dollar mono-ethylene glycol project in Hohhot, China.

Air Products will build, own and operate the air separation, gasification, and gas clean-up processing facility that will include its proven and recently acquired Shell gasification technology. The project is expected to come on-stream in the fourth quarter of Air Products’ fiscal year 2021.

“Air Products is very pleased to have been awarded this very important gasification project by Jiutai. This facility will be the first plant 100% owned by Air Products and is a prime example of our gasification strategy focused on building, owning and operating the facilities and supplying syngas under long-term onsite contracts. We continue to build our credibility when it comes to gasification around the world. We acquired the Shell gasification technology, we executed at Lu’An in China, signed an agreement with Yankuang in China, just announced the world-class $8bn project building on our success in Saudi Arabia, and now we have won this project for Jiutai. I repeat what I have said earlier, Air Products is by far, the premier gasification company in the world,” said Air Products Chairman, President and CEO Seifi Ghasemi.
