The Hydrogen Manufacturing Unit (HMU) will be built on the Tabangao refinery in Batangas, Philippines. The move follows a long term contract signed between Air Liquide Philippines and Pilipinas Shell for supplying hydrogen to Shell’s Tabangao refinery.
Philippines – Air Liquide Philippines and Pilipinas Shell have recently signed a long-term contract for the supply of hydrogen to Shell’s Tabangao refinery in Batangas, Philippines. The new venture will secure for the Tabangao refinery a continuous supply of hydrogen for its processing needs.
Air Liquide will invest 33 million dollars (30 million Euros) for the construction of a state-of-the-art Hydrogen Manufacturing Unit (HMU) that will be built on the Tabangao refinery in Batangas. The HMU, owned and operated by Air Liquide, will be fitted with a CO2 recovery unit that mitigates direct carbon emission levels by capturing and liquifying the CO2 for other uses. This new large scale project is in line with Air Liquide’s Climate Objectives and commitment to supporting key customers and strategic partners with more sustainable solutions.
Francois Abrial, member of the Air Liquide Group’s Executive Committee supervising Asia Pacific commented: “This gas supply contract reflects the long-term partnership and the mutual trust between Air Liquide and Shell. We are confident in our ability to create value for our key customers in the Philippines and deliver superior performance that considers both business interests and environmental sustainability.”
