World-scale projects are required to reduce green hydrogen costs, says Air Products


Air Products yesterday (27th Jan) reaffirmed its commitment to hydrogen as it took part in a virtual panel discussion detailing the findings of the Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association’s (FCHEA) Road Map to a US Hydrogen Economy report.

“We believe world-scale projects, such as the NEOM project, are required to rapidly reduce the cost of green hydrogen and more quickly help the world reduce its carbon footprint,” Eric Guter, Air Products’ Vice-President of Hydrogen for Mobility Solutions said at the event.

Guter’s reference to the NEOM project refers to its partnership with ACWA Power and NEOM, through which they will build a $5bn world-scale green hydrogen-based ammonia production facility powered by renewable energy.

The joint venture project will include the innovative integration of over four gigawatts of renewable power from solar, wind and storage; production of 650 tonnes per day of hydrogen by electrolysis; production of nitrogen by air separation using Air Products’ technology; and the production of 1.2 million tonnes per year of green ammonia.
