Air Products, Thyssenkrupp to collaborate on green hydrogen projects

July 10/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Air Products says it has agreed to collaborate exclusively with Thyssenkrupp on the development of green hydrogen supplies for sustainable chemicals, transportation, and power generation projects, according to Chemweek.

Thyssenkrupps subsidiary Uhde Chlorine Engineers, a leader in large-scale electrolysis plant technologies, will supply specific engineering, equipment, and technical services for water electrolysis plants to be built, owned and operated by Air Products.

The strategic agreement is an important element of our value chain in developing, building, owning, and operating world-scale projects and supplying green hydrogen for mobility, energy and industrial applications, says Air Products COO Samir Serhan.

Large-scale electrolysis is a key technology to connect renewable power to the different sectors of mobility and industry, says Denis Krude, CEO at Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers. We are proud to cooperate with Air Products in making value chains for fuels, chemicals, and industry feedstocks sustainable.

As MRC reported earlier, in December 2014, SIBUR-Khimprom (a subsidiary of SIBUR Holding) and Air Products entered into an agreement to build a new air separation unit in Perm and to supply the facility with locally produced gases. The unit came on-stream in 2016. After the commissioning Air Products will supply industrial gases for SIBUR-Khimprom over the next 20 years.

Besides, we remind that in September 2019, SIBUR, the largest petrochemical comples in Russia and Eastern Europe, and BASF, Geman petrochemical major, agreed to closely cooperate on sustainable development to share their best practices.

Ethylene and propylene are feedstocks for producing polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 595,170 tonnes in the first five month of 2020, up by 10% year on year. Deliveries of all ethylene polymers, except for linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), rose partially because of an increase in capacity utilisation at ZapSibNeftekhim. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market was 457,930 tonnes in January-May 2020 (calculated by the formula production minus export plus import). Deliveris of exclusively PP random copolymer increased.
