TOPSOE BLUE AMMONIA TECHNOLOGY FOR US CLEAN ENERGY COMPLEX

Monday, October 18, 2021 

Haldor Topsoe is to deliver its Blue Ammonia technology for Air Products US$ 4.5bn clean energy complex in Louisiana, USA, which is expected to become operational in 2026.

The company believes that the new facility will avoid the emission of over 5m t/y of greenhouse gas emissions, through the use of it Blue Ammonia synthesis technology, proprietary hardware and catalysts.

Air Products' plant will be capable of producing over 750m ft3/day of blue hydrogen. A portion of the blue hydrogen will be compressed and supplied by Air Products’ Gulf Coast hydrogen pipeline network to customers. The balance of the blue hydrogen will be used to make blue ammonia that will be transported around the world and converted back to blue hydrogen for transportation and other markets.

“We are happy to support Air Products in their rapid expansion of renewable offerings through our partnership framework. We believe that this significant project will showcase our unique ammonia technology in a true world-scale setting,” said Roeland Baan, CEO Haldor Topsoe.

”The strength of our global alliance agreement with Haldor Topsoe, providing access to technology-leading capabilities, continues to be reinforced through our latest, large-scale project – a landmark complex in Louisiana that will help meet cleaner energy needs in the US Gulf Coast and around the world,” said Dr Samir J Serhan, COO Air Products.

Topsoe and Air Products already have a well-established collaboration with Topsoe delivering technology for Gulf Coast Ammonia’s ammonia facility in Texas  and the NEOM project in Saudi Arabia, with a capacity of 650 MTPD of green hydrogen that will be converted into 3,500 MTPD of green ammonia. Furthermore, Topsoe will provide its SynCOR blue hydrogen technology to Air Products’ recently announced blue hydrogen complex in Alberta, Canada.
