Air Products plans to build big hydrogen complex in Canada

US LNG equipment specialist Air Products is looking to build a big hydrogen complex in Canada’s Alberta.

Air Products Canada, in conjunction with the government of Canada and the province of Alberta, announced the plan last week.

The project would make Edmonton the “centre of western Canada’s hydrogen economy and set the stage for Air Products to operate the most competitive and lowest-carbon-intensity hydrogen network in the world,” the firm said in a statement.

Air Products said it began work in 2018 on the core of this complex in Edmonton, which would start with a C$1.3 billion ($1.06 billin) net-zero hydrogen production and liquefaction facility expected onstream in 2024.

In addition, Air Products’ Board of Directors has arleady approved the project but it still needs final completion of the agreements contemplated in signed memorandums of understanding between Air Products and Canadian authorities, and permit approvals.

The company expects its hydrogen business in Alberta to reach over 1,500 tonnes of hydrogen production per day and achieve greater than three million tonnes per year of CO2 capture.

Air Products Canada currently operates three hydrogen production facilities in Alberta, and a 55-kilometer hydrogen pipeline in the Alberta Industrial Heartland.

The firm also operates a hydrogen production facility, a 30-kilometer pipeline network and a liquefaction facility in Sarnia, Ontario.
