Gasification

Proven Technologies and Expertise

We have a wide range of capabilities, industry leading gasification technologies, and operational expertise to process a full range of feedstocks.

ap0217-coal
Solid Hydrocarbons

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.

ap0216-bottom-of-the-barrel
Liquid Hydrocarbons

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.

ap0218-natural-gas
Gaseous Hydrocarbons

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.

Delivering Operational Excellence for Mega-project in China

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.

Gasification Projects

Air Products is a premier provider of turnkey solutions to convert hydrocarbon feedstock into synthesis gas for high-value products. Our proven gasification technologies take a full range of lower-value feedstocks and convert them in a lower-emission manner into syngas, which is then used to make higher-value products.

$12 Billion ASU/Gasification/Power Joint Venture at Jazan, Saudi Arabia

Air Products announced the completion of the asset acquisition and project financing transactions for the $12 billion air separation unit /gasification/power joint venture (JV) with Aramco, ACWA Power and Air Producs Qudra at Jazan, Saudi Arabia.

The JV has purchased ASUs, gasification, syngas cleanup, utilities and power assets from Aramco. The JV owns and operates the facility under a 25-year contract for a fixed monthly fee, with Aramco supplying feedstock to the JV, and the JV producing power, steam, hydrogen and other utilities for Aramco.

The JV serves Aramco’s Jazan Refinery, a megaproject to process 400,000 barrels per day of the crude oil to produce the main products such as ultra-light sulphur diesel, gasoline, and other products.
