Haldor Topsoe to supply blue ammonia tech to Air Products Louisiana project

Denmark-headed Haldor Topsoe A/S, a global leader in high-performance catalysts and proprietary technologies for the chemical and refining industries has announced that it will supply blue ammonia synthesis technology, proprietary hardware, and catalysts to global industrial gases company Air Products Inc’s landmark US$4.5 billion clean energy complex in Louisiana (LA), United States (US).

Air Products will build a landmark megaproject with integrated carbon capture and storage (CCS), which will produce over 750 million standard cubic feet per day (scfd) of blue hydrogen. The facility will be built in Ascension Parish, Louisiana (LA) by Air Products and is expected to be operational in 2026.

A portion of the blue hydrogen will be compressed and supplied by Air Products’ US 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.

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 at Air Products.

Topsoe and Air Products already have a well-established collaboration with Topsoe delivering technology for Gulf Coast Ammonia’s world-scale ammonia facility (3 600 tonnes per day), in Texas City, Texas (TX), and the NEOM project in Saudi Arabia with a capacity of 650 tonnes per day of green hydrogen that will be converted into 3 500 tonnes per day of green ammonia.

Furthermore, Topsoe will provide its SynCOR blue hydrogen technology to Air Products’ recently announced blue hydrogen complex in Alberta (AB), Canada.

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 at Haldor Topsoe.
