Lehigh Valley/USA – Air Products will build, own and operate a 10 metric ton per day facility to produce green liquid hydrogen in Casa Grande, Arizona, USA. The zero-carbon liquid hydrogen facility is expected to be on-stream in 2023 and its product will be sold to the hydrogen for mobility market in California and other locations requiring zero-carbon hydrogen.

The facility will use two thyssenkrupp nucera electrolyzers to produce gaseous hydrogen, which will be converted to liquid hydrogen using Air Products’ proprietary technology. The site will also include a terminal for distributing product to customer locations throughout California and other markets.

Air Products’ production process eliminates carbon by powering the entire facility with zero-carbon renewable power. The facility will include advanced compression technology supplied through the Baker Hughes strategic alliance to feed the liquefier.

Through several regulations California has taken steps to aggressively decarbonize its transportation sector, the largest emissions sector in its economy, through conversion to zero emission vehicles. The state has also set a goal that all drayage trucks be zero emissions by 2035 and heavy-duty vehicles convert to zero emissions vehicles by 2045.

Hydrogen is an essential part of decarbonizing the transportation sector. Hydrogen fuel cells are gaining momentum as the technology of choice compared to batteries in heavy-duty applications due to faster refuel times, longer range, and larger payloads, while also performing better in extreme climate conditions. Hydrogen as a transportation fuel most closely mirrors the traditional transportation fueling experience.
