TotalEnergies and Air Liquide to produce low-carbon hydrogen at the Grandpuits Zero Crude Platform

November 23, 2022 |

In France, Air Liquide said it is entering a partnership related to producing and valorizing low-carbon hydrogen at TotalEnergies Granpuits biorefinery site.

Under a long-term contract, Air Liquide will invest over $134.7 million in the construction and operation of a new unit producing hydrogen, from which TotalEnergies is committing to purchase the hydrogen produced for the needs of its platform. 

Air Liquide will build and operate at the Grandpuits site a new hydrogen production unit with an annual capacity of more than 20,000 tons. By recycling, in part, residual biogases from Grandpuits’ biorefinery as a substitute for the natural gas traditionally used, the hydrogen produced by this unit will be partly renewable.

This unit will partly use biogas from the biorefinery built by TotalEnergies, and will be delivered with Air Liquide’s carbon capture technology, CryocapT. These innovations will prevent emissions amounting to 150,000 tons of CO2 a year compared to current processes. TotalEnergies’ biorefinery will use the unit’s hydrogen to produce sustainable aviation fuel.
