La Porte/USA – The plant draw its hydrogen to be liquefied from th companys’ existing Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline system network, and is to be onstream in 2021. The investment in this new liquid hydrogen production facility in Texas is intended to meet growing customer demand as well as the increased growth the company expects to come from several markets.

Once liquefied at La Porte, the hydrogen will be delivered in trailers to customers in industries including: electronics, chemical and petrochemical, metals, material handling, float glass, edible fats and oils, and utilities. Air Products also has liquid hydrogen production plants operating in New Orleans, Louisiana; Sacramento, California; Sarnia, Ontario, Canada; and Rotterdam in The Netherlands.

The new facility at La Porte will join the industrial gases company’s existing hydrogen and syngas production operations, as well as an air separation unit. The liquid hydrogen plant will be connected to, and draw hydrogen from, Air Products’ Gulf Coast Pipeline (GCP), the world’s largest hydrogen plant and pipeline network system. The 965-km pipeline span stretches from the Houston Ship Channel in Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana.

Besides the GCP, Air Products also has a hydrogen pipeline in California in the U.S., in Sarnia, Ontario and Alberta, Canada, and in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
