Offers from Air Liquide
Hydrogen and biomethane for clean transportation
Hydrogen and biomethane are complementary energies which allow reducing significantly the carbon footprint of vehicles
Aware of the energy and environmental challenges, and thanks to its strong expertise in the field of gases, Air Liquide develops innovative solutions to offer an efficient response to the major challenges facing the society. Hydrogen and biomethane contributes to address today’s energy and environmental challenges by offering an alternative to fossil fuels. Air Liquide is present across the value chain of both these energies, from production through storage and distribution, to the development of applications for end users. To date, Air Liquide has designed and installed 100 hydrogen stations in the world (cars, bus, forklifts) and more than 60 bioNGV stations for road transport in Europe.
Biogas purification and upgrading
Air Liquide buy your biogas and purify it, allowing it to be injected into the natural gas grid, or to be liquefied
World leader in the supply of biogas purification technologies with an installed capacity of 160 000 m³/h, Air Liquide has developed technologies and expertise that span the entire biomethane value chain: purification of biogas into biomethane (CO2 separation membranes), injection into the natural gas network, liquefaction, distribution for clean transportation fleets. The purification and biogas valorization is a very promising example of a circular economy, which helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and which could contribute to solutions for the zero emission transportation of tomorrow. Overall, Air Liquide has designed and deployed worldwide 50 biogas purification units in order to transform biogas into biomethane and inject it into the natural gas networks.
