CO2 Capture

Zachytávanie uhlíka

Landmark U.S. $4.5 Billion Louisiana Blue Hydrogen Clean Energy Complex

Air Products will invest $4.5B to build-own-operate the world’s largest blue hydrogen production facility, producing over 750 MMSCFD of blue hydrogen in Louisiana, USA. A portion of the blue hydrogen will be compressed and supplied to customers by our U.S. Gulf Coast pipeline network; the balance will be used to make blue ammonia that will be transported around the world and converted back to blue hydrogen for transportation and other markets.

The megaproject will also capture over five million metric tons per year of CO₂, making it the largest carbon capture for sequestration facility in the world. Numerous studies have shown that Louisiana’s geology is some of the best in the world for permanent geologic sequestration.

The project is expected to be operational in 2026. 

Zachytávanie, používanie a skladovanie uhlíka vo veľkom meradle 

Air Products navrhol a skonštruoval rozsiahly systém na zachytávanie oxidu uhličitého (CO₂) z našich dvoch parných reformátorov metánu, ktoré sa nachádzajú v rafinérii Valero v Port Arthur, Texas. Získaný a vyčistený CO₂ sa dodáva potrubím na použitie pri operáciách vylepšeného získavania ropy.

Tento bezprecedentný úspech, ktorý ministerstvo energetiky opísalo ako míľnik vo svojom programe priemyselného zachytávania a ukladania uhlíka, ktorý využíva Air Products inovatívnu technológiu, bol prvým svojho druhu fungujúcim v takom veľkom rozsahu.

Od roku 2013 technológia Air Products na zachytávanie a sekvestráciu uhlíka v našom zariadení v Port Arthur zachytila približne jeden milión metrických ton CO₂ ročne, ktoré by sa inak vypustili do životného prostredia. 

zachytávanie CO2 zo splynovania

V súčasnosti uprednostňovanou technológiou na zachytávanie CO₂ z procesov splyňovania je selektívna separácia H2S a CO2 z "posunutého" syngasu, zvyčajne v procese fyzikálnej adsorpcie rozpúšťadla. Máme značné prevádzkové skúsenosti s týmito technológiami v USA a na celom svete, avšak Air Products tiež skúma alternatívnu možnosť zachytávania CO₂, ktorá ťaží z našich dlhoročných skúseností s navrhovaním a prevádzkou systémov H₂ tlakovej adsorpcie (PSA) spojených s našimi parné reformátory. Nová technológia PSA vo vývoji spracováva kyslý syngas, čím potenciálne odstraňuje potrebu ďalších jednotiek na odstraňovanie kyslých plynov. Tento zjednodušený proces má potenciál ponúknuť rýchlejšiu priepustnosť a nižšie kapitálové náklady. 

Landmark New Net-zero Hydrogen Energy Complex in Canada

Air Products and its subsidiary Air Products Canada Ltd., in conjunction with the Government of Canada and the Province of Alberta, are planning to build a landmark new net-zero hydrogen energy complex.

The project will begin with a transformative $1.3 billion (CAD) net-zero hydrogen production and liquefaction facility expected onstream in 2024. Air Products will deploy advanced hydrogen technology and innovative design to deliver net-zero emissions. The new facility will capture over 95 percent of the carbon dioxide (CO₂) from the feedstock natural gas and store it safely back underground. Hydrogen-fueled electricity will offset the remaining five percent of emissions.

The clean energy complex will help refining and petrochemical customers served by the Air Products Heartland Hydrogen Pipeline to reduce their carbon intensity. The complex also marks a first in the wider use of hydrogen in Alberta, enabling the production of liquid hydrogen to be an emissions-free fuel in the transportation sector, and to generate clean electricity. This is expected to have a positive impact in lowering Alberta’s carbon emissions.

Paving the Way to Net Zero in Canada

Multi-billion dollar landmark new net-zero hydrogen energy complex will make Edmonton, Alberta the center of western Canada’s hydrogen economy and set the stage for Air Products to operate the most competitive and lowest-carbon-intensity hydrogen network in the world. .
