Air Liquide’s technology chosen for low-carbon hydrogen test in Japan

Japan-based Inpex Corporation (INPEX) has selected Air Liquide’s Autothermal Reforming (ATR) technology to produce low-carbon hydrogen and ammonia as part of a demonstration project designed to showcase the technology’s capability of producing clean fuels.

When combined with carbon capture technology, ATR is considered one of the latest technologies for enabling the production of large-scale, low carbon hydrogen and ammonia, allowing users to achieve higher energy efficiency at reduced cost.

According to Air Liquide, the technology will be supplied to INPEX through its subsidiary Air Liquide Engineering & Construction, marking Japan’s first demonstration project integrating low carbon hydrogen and ammonia production with carbon capture.

“Air Liquide’s expertise in providing customers with efficient, reliable, innovative technologies and solutions is at the heart of our ambitions to support the decarbonisation of industries,” said Michael J. Graff, Executive Vice President of Air Liquide Group.

The pilot will become part of the development of the Kashiwazaki Clean Hydrogen and Ammonia Project in the Hirai area of Kashiwazaki City, Niigata Prefecture, Japan.
