Air Products’ two new hydrogen facilities on-stream


Air Products has opened its two new hydrogen production facilities in the US.

The plants, based in Convent (Louisiana) and Baytown (Texas), are among six facilities in the US and Canada that Air Products is bringing on-stream over a ten-month period.

These six new facilities will increase Air Products’ hydrogen production capacity by 35 per cent, and annual hydrogen and related syngas sales of approximately $1.3 billion by more than $400 million. The hydrogen is used by refiners to make cleaner transportation fuels and other petroleum products from heavier, sour crude feedstocks.

‘Despite some of the difficulties brought on by the hurricanes, the facilities are operational very close to their original schedule.
