Air Products to construct a blue hydrogen plant and a carbon capture and storage system in Louisiana

Published on 28th October 2021

Near Burnside, Louisiana, Air Products & Chemicals Inc. is building a 750-MMscfd blue hydrogen complex.

 

The complex will also capture more than 5 million tonnes of CO2 each year, making it the world's largest permanent carbon dioxide sequestration project to date, according to the business. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2026.

 

Hydrocarbons are used as a feedstock for blue hydrogen production, with carbon dioxide recovered during the process for long-term sequestration.

 

According to the firm, about 95 percent of the carbon dioxide produced at the Air Products plant will be captured, compressed, and transferred by pipeline to inland sequestration locations along a 35-mile pipeline corridor east of the complex.

 

The State Mineral and Energy Board of Louisiana has given Air Products permission to permanently sequester carbon dioxide in geologic pore space about a mile below ground. The total cost of the facility will be USD 4.5 billion
