USA: Collaboration on Large-Scale Projects Air Products and Topsoe Sign Global Alliance Agreement
The two industrial giants Air Products and Haldor Topsoe have signed a global Alliance Agreement. The companies plan to collaborate in the development of potential projects and the combination of their expertise on large-scale ammonia, methanol and/or dimethyl ether plants to be developed and built globally.
Lehigh Valley/USA — Through a recently signed Alliance Agreement, Air Products will have access to Topsoe’s technology license(s) and the supply of certain engineering design, equipment, high-performance catalysts and technical services for ammonia, methanol and/or dimethyl ether plants to be built, owned and operated by Air Products. The collaboration allows for the integration of Topsoe’s technology into many Air Products’ technologies including gasification of various feedstocks, and synthesis gas processes.
According to Amy Hebert, Deputy CEO and Executive Vice President at Haldor Topsoe, this alliance forms the foundation for integrated large-scale projects that are to benefit from the close collaboration and combined strengths of the two companies.
Topsoe’s technology enables companies in the chemical and refining industries to get the most out of their processes and products, using the least possible energy and resources. The company`s technology will be incorporated into Air Products’ recently announced world-scale coal-to-methanol production facility in Bengalon, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. In addition, their technology will also be part of the previously announced world-scale Gulf Coast Ammonia production plant in Texas. Air Products will supply hydrogen and nitrogen for the ammonia production in part from its largest-ever steam methane reformer.
