Canada: Green Solutions Air Products Selects Topsoe Technology for Net-Zero Hydrogen Energy Complex
Haldor Topsoe’s Syncor autothermal reforming technology has been chosen by Air Products for its world-scale net-zero hydrogen energy complex in Canada. The technology will be installed at Air Product’s new facility which will help to capture over 95 % of CO2 emissions.
Kgs. Lyngby/Denmark – The new facility will, based on Topsoe’s Syncor autothermal reforming technology, capture over 95 percent of the produced CO2, which will then be stored safely underground. Hydrogen-fueled electricity will power the plant and offset the remaining five percent of emissions at the site. 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 will also produce liquid hydrogen for merchant sales and as a clean fuel in the transportation sector.
The hydrogen complex is part of Air Products’ ambition to reach over 1,500 tons of hydrogen production per day and achieve more than three million tons per year of CO2 capture in Alberta alone.
“By being a first mover and investing in this innovative landmark project, we are paving the way for hydrogen from Edmonton to meet industrial and transportation needs throughout western Canada. Our highly integrated project will be a model for net-zero atmospheric gas, hydrogen and power production consistent with our announced growth platforms,” says Robert Tikovsky, vice president, Process Gases Product Line at Air Products.
