Low-Carbon Emissions LG Chem Selects Technip Energies’ Blue H2 Technology
Technip Energies has licensed its blue hydrogen technology to LG Chem for its project in South Korea. The new hydrogen plant will be merged with LG Chem’s naphtha cracking complex to convert the firm’s petrochemical pyrolysis complex to a low-carbon process.
Nanterre/France – Technip Energies has announced that LG Chem has selected its proprietary blue hydrogen technology for the project. The Blue H2 by T.Entm hydrogen plant will capture a significant amount of carbon dioxide, and reduce carbon emissions from the petrochemical complex. LG Chem intends to utilize the captured CO2.
The 56,000 Nm3/h capacity hydrogen plant will utilize Technip Energies’ proprietary steam reforming technology to convert methane-rich offgas from the naphtha cracking process into hydrogen. The hydrogen plant will include a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) unit for control of NOx emissions.
The new hydrogen unit will be integrated with LG Chem’s naphtha cracking complex (NCC) to allow LG Chem to convert the petrochemical pyrolysis complex to a more sustainable low-carbon process.
