The new facility will supply carbon monoxide and hydrogen to Huntsman’s Geismar operations. The project is also expected to be connected to the world’s largest hydrogen pipeline and network system.

Pennsylvania/USA: Air Products and Huntsman recently gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony at the site of what will be Air Products’ new steam methane reformer (SMR) and cold box in Geismar, Louisiana. Air Products will build, own and operate the facility under a long-term agreement and industrial gases including carbon monoxide (CO), hydrogen and steam will be produced and supplied to Huntsman’s neighboring Geismar operations. The new facility is to be commercially on-stream in early 2020.

The new facility, to be located on land leased from Huntsman, will produce approximately 6.5 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of CO, 50 mmscfd of hydrogen, and up to 50,000 pounds per hour of steam. There is also the ability for the facility to be expanded to increase CO in the future to support additional growth.

Beyond supply to Huntsman’s production facility in Geismar, Air Products’ new plant will also be connected to its Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline and network system (GCP). Dedicated in 2012, the 600-mile pipeline span is the world’s largest hydrogen plant and pipeline network system. The GCP stretches from the Houston Ship Channel in Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana, and supplies customers with over 1.4 billion feet of hydrogen per day from 22 hydrogen production facilities.
