The purified syngas or the gaseous hydrogen extracted from it is distributed via a pipeline network, which brings the gas to the precise point of use at the industrial complex. The customer is also planning to use the hydrogen as a fuel for vehicles. This will require transportable H2
containers and, further down the line, on-site
. The refinery and petrochemical customer currently uses half of the syngas for electrical power generation by gas turbines and heating across different processes. In future, however, the company also wants to use it to manufacture chemicals such as glycol, dimethyl ether and acetic acid (synthesis).
Linde Hydrogen FuelTech
has already developed refueling concepts with the potential to drive widespread commercialization of hydrogen as a future-fit fuel. Our hydrogen experts draw on a wealth of experience here to provide our customers with best technical and budgetary fit for their needs. To gain initial experience in H2
fueling on the ground, the refinery and petrochemical customer is currently focusing on buses. At the same time, it is also making plans to gradually build out a hydrogen infrastructure. This includes adding hydrogen refueling capabilities to existing conventional fueling stations along a key transport artery in the region. As some of these locations are up to 1,000 kilometers away from the H2
production units at the refinery site, the experts at Linde Hydrogen FuelTech have integrated capabilities to transport cryogenic liquid hydrogen as produced by liquefaction units of Linde Kryotechnik into their concept.
