Air Liquide and major Korean chemical company Kumho Mitsui Chemical (KMCI) expanded their cooperation with a recently signed long-term contract, according to which the industrial gases company will increase its supply of both hydrogen and carbon monoxide at the Yeosu industrial complex.

Paris/France — Under the terms of the new agreement, Air Liquide will invest around $ 125 million to build a new hydrogen production unit.

The new SMR (Steam Methane Reformer), designed, manufactured, owned and operated by Air Liquide, will increase production capacity in Yeosu of both hydrogen and carbon monoxide by around 50 %. By steam reforming natural gas, an SMR produces hydrogen and carbon monoxide. The new unit, fully integrated with the existing hydrogen and carbon monoxide supply system, will support the expansion of the clients' chemicals production at Yeosu.
