We dive in to understand the real need and then creatively apply the optimal gas or technology solutions.
Building on more than 40 years of gasification experience, Air Products has become a premier provider of turnkey solutions to convert hydrocarbon feedstock into synthesis gas for high-value products. We have proven gasification technologies that take a full range of lower-value feedstocks and convert them in a lower-emission manner into syngas, which can then be used to make higher-value products.
Air Products Syngas Solutions offers complete turnkey gasification complexes where we build, finance, own and operate the syngas production facility. Our industry-leading technologies and operational expertise enable our customers to focus on their core business and primary products.
We have a wide range of capabilities, industry leading gasification technologies, and operational expertise to process a full range of feedstocks.
High reliability and high efficiency gasification for solid hydrocarbon feedstocks, such as coal, petcoke and biomass, with a more than 20-year track record of world-class plants for coal to chemicals, synthetic fuels or power.
Cost-efficient, high-value solution for the “bottom of the barrel” material in a refinery complex, adding extra value and profit to the refinery as the world transitions away from high-sulfur fuel oil.
World-class, high-efficiency steam methane reforming plants providing syngas and/or hydrogen from a modest 1000 scf/d to a large-scale 100MM scf/d for de-sulfuring and upgrading fuels or providing hydrogen for fuel-cell vehicles.
When Lu’an, a leading clean energy company in China, needed a partner for their world-scale gasification project in Changzhi City, Shanxi Province, China, they turned to us. The mega-project, involving four large air separation units, four gasifiers and two syngas clean-up systems, supports one of China’s landmark clean energy demonstration projects.
The four ASUs built by Air Products combine to supply over 10,000 tons per day (TPD) of oxygen and more than 6,000 TPD of nitrogen to the Changzhi site. The gasifiers, which are four of the largest and most efficient in the world, employ Air Products’ gasification technology for converting coal to chemicals. Each gasifier converts ~3,000 TPD of coal into synthesis gas that is further purified and converted into clean transportation fuels by Lu’an.
The Air Products team brought the gasification plant up to stable operation in record time, further establishing our engineering expertise and operational excellence as the world’s premier gasification company.
